The many uses of Bentonite Clay range from coagulant to filter aid. It is a highly effective chemical, in granular form, for the purification of wastewater and sludge dewatering. It is composed of inorganic minerals and other proprietary compounds specially produced to absorb a wide variety of contaminants, and will encapsulate suspended solids, many organic compounds and toxicants. Bentonite clay can be dispersed into the treatment tank manually with a measuring scoop or continuously with a dry feed system, providing easy-to-use one-step chemistry.
