Calix has developed AQUA-Cal+ as a safe, environmentally friendly water conditioner to directly address problems associated with lake remediation such as fish kills, odour, bad algae blooms, little circulation, and sludge build-ups.
Ornamental lakes and treatment ponds are high in nutrients, and also tend to be stagnant due to a lack of aeration and circulation, which makes water management crucial to their longer-term health and ecosystem.
The unique properties of AQUA-Cal+ arise from the formation and optimisation of reactive superoxide species in our magnesium hydroxide particles, as well as enhanced calcium, from Calix’s technology.
These special features work with the well-established acid neutralisation and water clarification properties of Magnesium Hydroxide Liquids to provide an enhanced environment for ornamental lakes and ponds.
Calix controls the production process from mining of raw materials, to processing, to locally produced, end-product.
Calix owns and operates a mine, production, testing facilities and manufacturing plants. Vertically integrated manufacturing means better service, reliability and performance.
The ability to hydrate our high surface area MgO in our patented, close-to customer facilities creates multiple benefits for our customers and local communities.
Our AS/NZS ISO 9001 certified quality system and safety, health and environmental management system are vital elements of our engineering and quality services.
Calix’s solutions are manufactured using Calix Technology, which involves grinding minerals to particles around one thousandth of a millimetre in size, and then “flash” heating them in a very short time at up to 1.000 degrees Celsius. As trapped gases in the mineral “bubble out” of the particles, we snap freeze them in a very high energy state, leaving a very porous, honey-comb-like structure.
New materials produced by Calix Technology are proving to have similar properties to highly active nano-materials, without the safety concerns and high cost, but with all the benefits. This means it has the high reactivity of nano-material, without the potential health and handling issues.
Calix has its own direct delivery, service and support capabilities and also has an established a network of local distributors and partners that can provide the best solution for your specific needs and ensure you receive excellent customer service and support.
