In plants currently using metal salts, the addition of THIOGUARD® technical grade magnesium hydroxide can REDUCE METAL SALT USAGE BY UP TO 50%
Increased regulation of total phosphorus limits are a fact of life, and another challenge for WWT plant operators and engineers. In most treatment plants, metal salts (ferrous/ferric or aluminum) are added for the treatment of phosphates.
Adding THIOGUARD® technical grade magnesium hydroxide will:
- Minimize or eliminate the addition of metal salts
- Enhance biological phosphorus uptake in bioreactors
- Reduce the amount of metal-laden sludge
- Increase agricultural phosphate recovery
- Reduce dewatering, handling and transportation costs
- Eliminate the need for expensive plant upgrades
THIOGUARD® is specifically formulated for maximum alkalinity and magnesium utilization in biological processes, enhancing the performance of metal salts in removing phosphates chemically – while simultaneously improving biological uptake in bioreactors.
THIOGUARD® improves plant performance
Improved plant performance = significant savings
Thioguard is engineered to provide maximum magnesium hydroxide and sustained alkaline utilization, enhancing the formation of metal hydroxide precipitate and increasing the adsorption of soluble phosphorus.
The benefits of adding THIOGUARD® to your treatment processes are not limited to enhanced phosphorus treatment and management. In addition, THIOGUARD® is the ONLY commonly used product that has a direct mechanism to prevent corrosion through sustainable and balanced pH levels. You will also benefit from a reduction in the formation of metal-laden sludge - significantly reducing your handling and transportation costs. The benefits are numerous and system-wide, making THIOGUARD® the practical choice for your entire system.
