Ferric Chloride Storage Tanks

Ferric Chloride Storage Tanks – Ferric Chloride, also known as Iron (III) Chloride, Iron Trichloride and FeCl3, is a mineral hydrate solution whilst commonly used as an etching agent during the production of electronic circuit boards, is also used in the water industry as a flocculant during wastewater treatment.  Ferric chloride is one of the purest and most concentrated forms of iron commercially available for drinking water treatment with its unique functions as a reactant to remove impurities from the water acting as a coagulant and flocculent.

Benefits Ferric Chloride For Water Treatment

Ferric Chloride has the following benefits for drinking water treatment operations:

  • It is extremely effective in removing high and low turbidity
  • Removes colour and discolouration
  • Requires a lower dosage than other sulphate-based coagulants creating a heavier flock that settles faster and works better in cold water
  • Produces higher sludge concentrations meaning decreased sludge disposal costs

Other uses of ferrous chloride in wastewater treatment include:

  • Eliminating sulphide-based odours
  • Reducing arsenic and mercury
  • Adjusting pH
