What are Flocculants
What is flocculation
Flocculation is the process in which colloids — low-diameter particles that affect water's color or turbidity — are suspended in the form of loosely clumped particles called flocs. It can occur either spontaneously or by adding a flocculant — a water treatment chemical that aggregates the particles. Once these particles join together, they make it easier for the physical filtration process to remove them. First, water treatment facilities use coagulants to neutralize any charged particles suspended in the water.
