Flocculant Chemicals

Flocculants and coagulants are often used in effluent wastewater treatment processes for solids removal, water clarification, lime softening, sludge thickening, and solids dewatering.

Flocculation is a water treatment process where colloids come out of suspension in the form of floc, either spontaneously or due to the addition of a clarifying agent known as a flocculant. Flocculants are used in applications like water purification, sewage treatment, cheese production and brewing, for example.


WMT has an extensive line of long-chain polymer flocculants that can be supplied in dry or liquid form for use in the flocculation process. The most common liquid, polyacrylamide, is supplied as an emulsion. This form allows easy handling of viscous polymers at high concentrations. These emulsion polymers require “activation” – inversion of the emulsion so that the polymers molecules form an aqueous solution. WMT offers both NSF-approved and GRAS-applicable flocculation products. Wastewater Treatment Technology’s environmental acumen and experience in wastewater treatment stand at the competitive forefront in providing discharge compliance at the Lowest Cost Operating Scenario. Our guaranteed economical compliance solutions are unmatched in the industry today. Our unique variety of coagulation, emulsion breaking, precipitation, flocculation and demulsification products and processes are supported by WMT’s team approach which brings decades of experience to select the correct coagulant and application approach.
