Coagulants and flocculants for water treatment
MagnaChem, manufactured from the natural mineral Magnetite, is an iron source to produce coagulants and flocculants for the water treatment industry.
Iron (Fe) used to produce coagulants and flocculants, can come from various sources such as:
- pickling liquor
- mill scale or scrap from the steel industry
- copperas or ferrous sulphate, from the titanium dioxide production
LKAB Minerals’ MagnaChem is natural alternative iron source to these recycled and less pure products.
