The main objectives of drinking water treatment are to produce high quality water that is safe for human consumption, has aesthetic appeal, conforms to standards, and is economical in production. One of the tools that help to achieve these goals is activated carbon. Activated carbon is useful in drinking water treatment because it acts as an adsorbent, and can effectively remove particles and organics from water. These organics are of great concern in water treatment because they react with many disinfectants, especially chlorine, and cause the formation of disinfection-by-products, DBP's .These DBP's are often carcinogenic and therefore highly undesirable. Activated carbon is one of the best tools which can be used to reduce risks to human health and provide an aesthetically pleasing product at reasonable cost .Adsorption is the process by which Activated Carbon removes substances from water. It is a removal process where certain particles are bound to an adsorbent particle surface by either chemical or physical attraction. The water industry uses activated carbon in several forms, typically powdered and granular, to deal with a variety of undesirable aspects in raw water. Activated Carbon comes as a black, solid output that looks like charcoal. Composed to be a highly porous material, the granular activated carbon possesses a large internal surface area that gives it the ability to hold back impurities and contaminants. A kg of our GAC has on offer as much as 500 acres of surface area.
Our activated carbon products effectively remove pollutants, contaminants and other impurities from water, air, food and beverages, pharmaceuticals and more.

A biocide is a chemical substance or microorganism which can deter, render harmless, or exert a controlling effect on any harmful organism by chemical or biological means. Biocides are commonly used in medicine, agriculture, forestry, and industry. Biocidal substances and products are also employed as anti-fouling agents or disinfectants under other circumstances: chlorine, for example, is used as a short-life biocide in industrial water treatment but as a disinfectant in swimming pools.
Biocides can be added to other materials (typically liquids) to protect them against biological infestation and growth. For example, ACUROCIDE 50 added to pool water or industrial water systems to act as an algicide, protecting the water from infestation and growth of algae. It is often impractical to store and use poisonous chlorine gas for water treatment, so alternative methods of adding chlorine are used. These include hypochlorite solutions, which gradually release chlorine into the water, and compounds like SDIC and TCCA. These compounds are stable while solids and may be used in powdered, granular, or tablet form. When added in small amounts to pool water or industrial water systems, the chlorine atoms hydrolyze from the rest of the molecule forming hypochlorous acid (HOCl) which acts as a general biocide killing germs, micro-organisms, algae, and so on.

Superabsorbent polymers (SAP) (also called slush powder) are polymers that can absorb and retain extremely large amounts of a liquid relative to their own mass.
Water absorbing polymers, which are classified as hydrogels when cross-linked,absorb aqueous solutions through hydrogen bonding with water molecules. A SAP's ability to absorb water is a factor of the ionic concentration of the aqueous solution. In deionized and distilled water, a SAP may absorb 500 times its weight (from 30–60 times its own volume) and can become up to 99.9% liquid, but when put into a 0.9% saline solution, the absorbency drops to maybe 50 times its weight. The presence of valence cations in the solution will impede the polymer's ability to bond with the water molecule.

LANXESS products help to ensure that we deal sparingly with this precious resource.
Metal ions are essential minerals for plants' growth. They are required in small amounts, and thus are refered to as 'Micronutrients'. Their deficiency results in yellowing of leaves, retarded growth and overall low quality of the crop.
Chelated compounds are more stable than non-chelated compounds. Therefore, metallic chelates are widely used in agriculture as micronutrient fertilizers to supply plants with Iron, Manganese, Zinc and Copper. The most common chelate used in agriculture is EDTA
How Does a Chelate Work?
Metal chelation is important because it makes metal ions more available for uptake by plants.
OH- ions are abundant in alkaline or neutral soils and soil-less media. Positively charged metal ions, such as Zn+2, Mn+2, Cu+2 and Fe+2, readily react with negatively charged hydroxide ions (OH-), making them unavailable to plants.
The ligand (a molecule that binds to a central metal atom) coats the metal ion, protecting it from the surrounding OH- ions. The complex can then be easily absorbed by the plant, where it is being degraded and consumed as micronutrients.
A Corrosion Inhibitor is a chemical compound that slows down or stops the corrosion (normally rusting) of the metallic parts of a well or drill.
In general, a typically effective corrosion inhibitor will provide 95% protection at a concentration of 80 ppm and 90% at a concentration of 40 ppm. One of the methods in which the inhibitor can work is the creation of a passivation layer – that is a thin layer or film on the surface of the material that acts as a barrier between the corrosive substance and the metal.
In the oil industry, Corrosion Inhibitors are designed to protect against water, both fresh and brine, biological deposits, carbon dioxide (anaerobic corrosion), hydrogen sulfide and other organic acids associated with drilling in all oil-field types.
Appearing as small opaque pinkish beads,molecular sieves are highly porous crystalline metal-alumino silicates. Compared with other desiccants, the distinctive feature is the uniformity pore size in the crystal-lattice structure which is part of the manufacturing process. As the pore size on molecular sieve particles is controlled, it allows the end product to be more precise then other desiccants so different pore sizes can be found, each one with a few different properties. Absorption will occur only for molecules with smaller diameters than the molecular sieves’ pore size larger molecules being excluded from absorption. Preferentially absorbed are molecules of greater polarity which makes molecular sieve ideal for absorption of water from liquids and gases as water molecules are both polar and very small. Molecular sieve is classified by its pore size in angstroms, some of the most used being 3A, 4A, 5A, 8A (10X) and 10A, also known as 13X. This feature allows the selection of a molecular sieve which can absorb water yet exclude most of other molecules or other desiccants which will absorb bigger molecules like aromatics or carbon dioxides. Molecular sieve absorbs up to 22% of its own weight and can hold moisture to temperatures well past 450°F (230°C), and because of its high affinity for moisture, molecular sieve is able to bring the relative humidity in packages down as low as 10% RH.
Acid inhibitors, in terms of metal manufacturing and handling can also be called acid corrosion inhibitors, rust preventatives or rust preventives. In essence, these are products (usually liquids) are used to permit:
These chemical additives are applied by dip, spray or other coating methods to protect metal components and equipment from the corrosive action of a direct contact or environmental acid. The concentration and type acid inhibitor needed is determined by the type of metal to be protected and the conditions experienced by the metal.
Aluminum, Steel, Iron, Titanium, etc., will all require alloy-specific formulations of corrosion preventative coatings for the best end result. Maintaining a proper blend ratio and homogeneous solution during the treatment is also essential to ensure the most effective and long-lasting protection.
