Flocculants

Description

 

Flocculants, or flocculating agents (also known as flocking agents), are chemicals that promote flocculation by causing colloids and other suspended particles in liquids to aggregate, forming a floc. Flocculants are used in water treatment processes to improve the sedimentation or filterability of small particles.Many flocculants are multivalent cations such as aluminium, iron, calcium or magnesium.These positively charged molecules interact with negatively charged particles and molecules to reduce the barriers to aggregation.
