Ballasted Clarification

The fastest and most reliable settling floc systems available

Ballasted clarification dramatically increases biological treatment capacity, helping meet ENR limits and produce effluent quality far superior than conventional alternatives, and at lower life-cycle costs.​ Ballasted clarification uses magnetite - fully inert iron ore particles - to ballast biological floc or conventional chemical floc, enhancing settling rates and increasing the performance of wastewater and water treatment facilities, while substantially reducing costs to upgrade process performance. The ability to handle a wide variation in flows and loads minimizes the risks of upsets.

Many of the applications for Ballasted Clarification are custom designed for specific applications. In many cases these applications are part of a retrofit solution for an existing plant to expand capacity and/or improve effluent quality. For CoMag® systems, there are also standard packages available for new installations.

Reduce Footprint

BioMag® systems provide up to 300% more treatment capacity in existing tankage

Increase Treatment Capacity

CoMag® systems settle floc up to 30 times faster than convention treatment

Reduce Cost

Integration with existing or planned facilities can substantially lower costs versus conventional systems
