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.
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).
At just 0.0047 ppm, your customers will start detecting the characteristic ‘rotten egg’ smell of H2S.
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.
Unlike many other Magnesium Hydroxide slurries, Calix’s ACTI-Mag is a concentrated (60%) stabilised suspension of magnesium hydroxide.
More solids = Lower required dose.
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.
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.
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.
