Clearwater Industries has been manufacturing dry polymer flocculant make-down systems for over twenty years. We are proud of the fact that many of our earliest units are still running today. We’ve also worked with clients to customize systems to meter, prepare, and dose products such as lime slaker, powdered activated charcoal, and starch.
Dry polymers provide the most cost-effective way to use flocculants. They contain 90+% active chemistry, whereas emulsion polymers are closer to 30% active chemistry. When using dry flocculant, the polymer solution must be batched accurately and reliably. Our dry polymer make-down system design allows the unit to hydrate the flocculant particles individually. Both hydraulic and mechanical mixing energies are employed to ensure a uniform solution. Our units are sized according to the specifications of each application to guarantee proper chemical activation. One example of our commitment to robust design and construction is building all of our standard M-Series tanks with triple welded 316 grade stainless steel.
