Dry flocculant water treatment chemicals are supplied in highly concentrated dry powder form which removes the need to store liquid chlorine chemicals on-site. In use they can be diluted down many times to treat large quantities of water, promoting the formation of flocks of small particles that are easier to filter out.
There are two main stages to using dry flocculant water treatment chemicals. The first is to dilute the dry powder into liquid form, and the second is to treat the pool water directly. A 2kg container of dinofloc Active Concentrate makes 33 litres of active liquid flocculant. In hard water areas it is sensible to dilute using 30 litres of water, but the dosing rate can be reduced accordingly so no overall efficiency is lost.
In use, the diluted liquid flocculant is delivered into pool water at a continual steady rate using a suitable dosing pump. This encourages small particles and contaminants in the pool to form larger clumps or 'flocks' which are then removed more quickly and effectively by the pool filters.
Dry flocculant water treatment chemicals are specialist treatment chemicals ideal for use in general pool water treatment applications, and particularly where there is a need or a desire to avoid personnel handling liquid chlorination chemical agents.
Each dinofloc package contains four 2kg containers equivalent to 132 litres of liquid polyaluminium chloride (PAC) and can be diluted in a day tank with simple tapwater. In addition to swimming pools, it is suitable for use in other applications including hot tubs and drinking water - just ask if you need more guidance on a specific application or environment.
Check our Dosing Pumps and Dosing Accessories pages for equipment suitable for diluting and dispersing flocculant chemicals, including day tanks in our Chemical Dosing Tanks category. Here you will also find electric and manual agitators that can be used to mix day tanks for faster dilution.
