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.

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).

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.

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.

The Calix difference

People, unique technology, partners, and track record

  • Calix Technology

Faster reactivity = less costs

Calix core technology makes high surface area materials (with a honeycomb-like structure), giving you a price and a reactivity advantage.

Our materials are proving to have similar properties to highly active nano-materials, without the health/safety concerns and high cost, but with all the benefits.
