Odour control

Unlike other odour control agents, which can be costly, potentially hazardous, and narrowly targeted at a single issue, ACTI-Mag magnesium hydroxide slurry offers a safe and cost-effective strategy for managing odour.

  • Excessive odour in sewage network, causing odour complaints?
  • Heavy build-up of Fogs layers in the network causing severe corrosion?
  • Excess usage of chemicals like lime and alum, & iron salts leading to high maintenance costs?
  • Frequent need for vacuum truck cleaning leading to an increase in maintenance costs?
ACTI-Mag for Odour Control

ACTI-Mag has a higher neutralising value per kilo when compared with caustic while being significantly safer to handle than other traditional alkalis, making it a very safe
and cost competitive option for hydrogen sulphide gas (H2S) control in sewers.

Download the Solution Spec Sheet

Hydrogen sulphide (H2S) gas is produced in sewage with a distinctive and unpleasant rotten egg smell causing frequent odour complaints.

Hydrogen sulphide is present due to anaerobic activity, which favours sulfate reducing bacteria (SRB) and results in the generation of a poisonous rotten egg gas called H2S. ACTI-Mag effectively locks up H2S to prevent release as a gas that produces odour and facilitates corrosion. ACTI-Mag is safe to handle and cost effective with many knock-on benefits that reduce treatment costs at the Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP).

H2S is highly toxic…

At just 0.0047 ppm, your customers will start detecting the characteristic ‘rotten egg’ smell of H2S.

ACTI-Mag NEUTRALISES FASTER

Less chemical consumption

Made with high surface area MgO (200m2 /gm), ACTI-Mag provides excellent neutralisation speed and produces less sludge, making it a much more stable product, which stays as a suspension longer compared to other Magnesium Hydroxide slurries.

  • Low viscosity – flows easily in most dosing systems
  • Higher neutralisation potential – better cost and usage efficiency
  • Reduced sludge – easier disposal (less costs)
  • Safe to handle / non hazardous (corrosion free)
  • Buffers at pH 9 if overdosed – better stability

not all magnesium hydroxide are made equal.

Unlike many other Magnesium Hydroxide slurries, Calix’s ACTI-Mag is a concentrated (60%) stabilised suspension of magnesium hydroxide.
More solids = Lower required dose.

WHY CHOOSE CALIX

FROM MINE TO CUSTOMER

Calix is able to offer better service, reliability and performance to its customers because it controls the entire production process from mining of raw materials, processing and production.

Calix owns and operates a mine in South Australia as well as production, testing facilities and manufacturing plants. 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.

FASTER REACTIVITY = COST SAVINGS

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 he 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.
