Commodity & Speciality Chemicals in Wastewater Treatment

Wastewater treatment functions best when all parameters are controlled. A biological treatment needs the right levels of alkalinity and nutrient balance to perform optimally, while a chemical treatment might need pH adjustments after coagulation to allow safe discharge. Very often the influent raw water of a wastewater system varies greatly, which can affect the performance of all treatment systems.

That is why a variety of commodity products are required to keep wastewater treatment safe and effective. Aquasan helps you bundle up a wide variety of commodity wastewater chemicals that help adjust your pH, remove foam, remove metals, eliminate odours, optimize nutrients consumption all while allowing you to minimize transport cost and time needed to order products.
