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 ?
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 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.
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.
People, unique technology, partners, and track record
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.
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, production, testing facilities and close-to-customers manufacturing plants.
From mine to customer!
Calix is committed to providing process development, manufacture, delivery and application of mineral based
products and services that meet the needs of our customers.
