Polyelectrolytes are water-soluble polymers composed of a polymer chain, combined with ionic charges.

Depending on the nature of the ionic charge, the polyelectrolyte can be classified as Cationic, Anionic, and Non-Ionic. Polyelectrolytes are also classified on the basis of their molecular weight. Such as low molecular weight, medium molecular weight, high molecular weight (HMW Polyelectrolyte) and ultra-high molecular weight.

Polyelectrolytes has been developed for solid/liquid separation in industrial and municipal waste water treatment. Polyelectrolytes also known as flocculating agent enhance the performance of the dewatering process thereby meeting the needs in varied industrial applications involving solid-liquid separation. The applications may include water purification, oil recovery, colour removal (decolorisation), COD /BOD reduction, paper & board production, mineral processing, mining, and various dewatering sludge, effluent treatment and various other process.

Polyelectrolytes are primarily used in Primary, Secondary, and Tertiary Clarification Process, High Sheer Applications, such as Centrifuges, DAF, thickening, and organic sludge dewatering in wastewater treatment plants. Polyelectrolyte supplied by us typically demonstrate the following features:

The ZETAG® Powder Range of anionic and cationic flocculants are used for solid/liquid separation in industrial and municipal wastewater treatment, and especially designed for high shear applications, such as Decanters, centrifuge machines
