Clearwater Industries has manufactured dry polymer make-down systems for 25 years.  Each system includes a lifetime warranty with the exclusive use of our chemistry.

Dry polymers are the most cost-effective way to use flocculants and settle solids out of liquid suspension.  They contain 90+% active chemistry, whereas emulsion polymers are closer to 30% active chemistry.  The active chemistry makes dry polymer ideal for liquid-solid separation and sludge dewatering.

Our M-Series units are automated to ensure reliable performance with minimal operator attention.  The systems minimize polymer consumption by fully activating and aging the solution.  The dry polymer particles are first introduced to water in the wetting funnel before being hydraulically sheared and mechanically mixed, delivering a uniform solution.  You can rely on our systems to accurately activate, age, and dose the polymer solution.

If one of our standard sizes doesn’t fit your needs, we’ll work with you to customize a system for your application.  Although typically used to make-down polymers, we’ve customized units to prepare and dose products such as lime slaker, powdered activated charcoal, and starch.

Custom Dry Polymer Systems

Clearwater Industries would love to work with you to design the optimal polymer system for your specific application.  As evidenced by the examples seen here, we relish the opportunity to innovate alongside our customers.

Some applications require the use of polypropylene tanks due to the corrosiveness of the chemicals needed. Our M-Series Polypropylene Tank Systems include all the features and add ons of our stainless steel systems with the below changes. 

  • ¾” thick polypropylene construction, welded inside and out
  • 3″ square tubing and 1-½” square tubing welded into a single, rigid frame
  • The frame is sandblasted, primed, and painted with aliphatic urethane paint for high gloss retention and strong chemical resistance
