BRENNFLOC ‘KB-SERIES’ NATURAL COAGULANTS

Environmentally acceptable treatment of oily wastewater is an urgent problem for many industries. Oily wastewater treatment, and effective separation of liquid and solid matter in wastewater, requires effective water treatment chemistries. Chemistry that is natural and offers a low use cost is the best solution for this challenge.

Industrial wastewater is one of the largest sources of water pollution. Large amounts of fresh water are used as a raw material during production processes wherein intermediate products and wastes are mixed with the water resulting in process water that must be treated before discharge or reuse. Wastewater is an unavoidable by-product of modern industry, and Brennfloc provides an essential solution. Our portfolio of natural coagulants, natural flocculants and reverse emulsion breakers provide you an environmentally friendly, sustainable solution at an exceptionally low use cost.

A Natural Separation

Wastewater is an unavoidable by-product of modern industry, and Brennfloc provides an essential solution. Our portfolio of industrial, plant-based natural coagulants, natural flocculants and reverse emulsion breakers provide you an environmentally friendly, sustainable solution at an exceptionally low use cost.

Brennfloc natural coagulants are derived from all-natural, plant-based materials making them sustainable, carbon neutral and always renewable.

Compared to Brennfloc natural coagulants, traditional synthetic polymers, like aPam, or inorganic metal salts, like Alum, require more product while treating water less effectively.

Our products are effective at lower treatment dosages, allowing you to decrease your product use and lower your overall use cost.​

Brennfloc Case Studies

Explore our case studies to see how Brennfloc has successfully completed many wastewater treatment projects in a variety of industries.

The challenge

Centralized waste treatment facilities treat wastewater from a variety of industries. Much of the wastewater contains very high pollutant concentrations, which are extremely difficult to treat, such as emulsified oil. Industrial processes frequently subject oil to chemical and mechanical action causing it to be dispersed into the water. This emulsified oil does not simply float on the surface of the water and must be removed using more intense treatment techniques.

The challenge

Solid and liquid separation water treatment is necessary to prevent the build-up of solids in wastewater systems. Suspended solids, dissolved solids and colloidal solids contained in industrial effluent must meet requirements before being discharged. In the food and beverage industry, wastes are commonly biodegradable and non-toxic, however, there are usually high concentrations of biochemical oxygen and suspended solids, surfactants, antibiotics and growth hormones, and oils and fats incorporated in the water, creating the need for a complex treatment process.

The challenge

A large oil refinery in the US committed to safety, the environment, and continuously improving supplier performance standards was faced with the challenge of increasing environmental performance and cutting costs for coagulant use in their wastewater processing units. This refinery has five different coagulant applications as part of its wastewater processing. In 2013, the refinery was challenged with the following: loss of a process water tank, a drive to improve environmental results at the wastewater treatment plant, and better cost control for the coagulant used throughout the refinery. The coagulant used at the PSO and IGF units was identified as an application where improvements in cost and performance could be made. To achieve this goal, a unique Brennfloc natural coagulant chemistry innovated by Dober’s Water Treatment Division was chosen for the treatment of the PSO and IGF units.

The challenge

Process water is used in industrial plants, industrial processes and production facilities following extensive water pretreatment such as softening or demineralizing. The objective of treatment to process water is to be able to recycle the water for reuse and feedback into the industrial process. Process water created from the mining and mineral processing industry is commonly contaminated with suspended solids, metals acids and salts.
