Polyaluminium Chlorohydrate



Clean water is essential for industrial processes

Clean process water is of the utmost importance in achieving stable runability and good quality in the production processes. Impurities in process water can affect the quality of the product. Our product range is characterized by a very high content of aluminum, thus representing an attractive and effective alternative to other products on the market. Aluminum chlorohydrate is a group of specific aluminum salts having the general formula AlnCl(3n-m)(OH)m. It is used in cosmetics as an antiperspirant and as a coagulant in water purification. In water purification, this compound is preferred in some cases because of its high charge, which makes it more effective at destabilizing and removing suspended materials than other aluminum salts such as aluminum sulfatealuminum chloride and various forms of polyaluminum chloride (PAC) and polyaluminum chlorisulfate, in which the aluminum structure results in a lower net charge than aluminum chlorohydrate. Further, the high degree of neutralization of the HCl results in minimal impact on treated water pH when compared to other aluminum and iron salts.

Tailor-made products for industrial processes and water treatment

Our aluminates can be used for a wide range of applications. Here is a selection of the many industries where our aluminates are used:
  • Water treatment
  • Wastewater treatment
  • Pulp and paper production
  • Production of catalysts
  • Pharmaceutical industry
  • Pigment industry
As the above shows, our products can be used for a vast number of applications and sometimes we are even surprised ourselves of the seemingly endless possibilities of aluminates. Our experience tells us that not every company fits into pre-fixed boxes. Therefore, we offer tailor-made solutions to meet the exact specifications you require for your production.

Different customers have different needs. We know the importance of a reliable supply chain. Whether you prefer IBC or tanktruck deliveres, tailormade products to exactly meet your water treatment plant specifications or short or long term planned deliveries you can count on us as a partner and long-term collaborator. We do our best every day to fulfill the demand for on-time deliveries at a competitive cost level.

Flocculation chemicals for industrial processes and water treatment

We provide State-of-the-Art Water Purification Solutions for usage in industrial water treatment. Sodium Aluminate and AluPAC (Poly Aluminim Chloride) are the clear choices of flocculation chemicals and for removal of phosfor. The uniformity of the products ensures an excellent result in the flotation or sedimentation process and ensures high water purity.

AluSAL – Sodium Aluminates

Aluminum products reduce chemical sludge production compared to iron, due to the low molecular weight of AI. Aluminates raise the alkalinity of the water, eliminating the need of lime or hydroxides. Additionally, Sodium Aluminate has a very low content of heavy metals.

AluPAC – Poly Aluminum Chloride

With slightly larger molecyles compared to Sodium Aluminate, AluPAC provides excellent flocculation properties. AluPAC is also suited for Microthrix (filamentous bacterium) control in wastewater and has a very low content of heavy metals.

AluPAL 48% – Potassium Aluminates

AluPAL is a solution of K2Al2O4. AluPAL is an economical source of high reactive aluminium of high purity. It is used in a wide range of applications such as: Water treatment, Wastewater treatment, Paper production, Pigment industry, Production of catalysts and Pharmaceutical industry. ฺBRANDS
