Water loop treatment High adsorptive Imerys bentonite for effective water loop treatment in DIP

With its high adsorption capacity, bentonite is an excellent solution for the treatment and purification of process water, wastewater and effluents in de-inked pulp (DIP) paper production using dissolved air flotation (DAF) and micro-flotation techniques.

Operating in concert with flocculation agents, bentonite agglomerates filler materials and colloidal constituents into stable flocs that can easily be skimmed after micro-flotation or sedimentation. 

Bentonite forms colloidal dispersions which, due to their high specific surface area and layer charge, possess strong adsorptive power. When combined with suitable polymers, our bentonite products also perform as flotation agents.

We recommend our Aquamont® grades for water loop treatments.

We offer a full range technical and process support services to help you match the right mineral grade to your application requirement.
