  • Caustic Soda (low freeze options)
  • Lime (dry and slurry)
  • Magnesium Hydroxide slurry



Peracetic Acid (PAA) Solutions

Peracetic acid, a powerful oxidative disinfectant, has many applications related to the treatment of wastewater including:

  • Hydrogen sulfide oxidation: Reduces and removes dangerous hydrogen sulfide (H2S) in water treatment applications.
  • Effluent disinfection: Used in conjunction with UV, improves clarity to help control effluent quality during high load and UV maintenance conditions.
