A technology that cleans contaminated water without using chemicals and makes it possible to reuse? Electrocoagulation can remove suspended solids to sub-micro levels, break up oil emulsions, such as oil, grease or latex, and eradicate heavy metals from water—all without the use of filters or the addition of chemicals. By “shocking” water, or applying an electric current, you destabilize the electrostatic charge that holds compounds together, allowing suspended matter to coagulate and form a mass that can be removed. This economical water treatment technology effectively harvests heavy metals and efficiently extracts a wide range of contaminants—to produce potable water.
Eco-minded water treatment professionals in the industrial sectors are turning to this evolved water cleaning and recycling process.
