When every drop counts

For more than two decades BASF has been known for its innovative thermal desalination products. The antiscalant Sokalan® PM 15 I is an industry benchmark and is approved for use in major MED and MSF thermal seawater desalination plants world-wide.

Sokalan AF is a pure organic, silicone free antifoam that provides excellent foam control for thermal desalination processes at low dosage rates. Sokalan RO antiscalants are a high performance chemical pre-treatment that control inorganic salts, metal hydroxides, and colloids in RO feed water.

New INGE® UF rack

Ultrafiltration is increasingly being deployed in mobile applications – for example by incorporating systems in containers or trailers which offer limited height and space for installation.To meet the needs of these and other applications that require space-saving, lightweight UF solutions with a low height, inge® has optimized the rack solution portfolio to include the new T-Rack® 3.0 S. This new rack combines the benefits of an extremely compact design with the advantages offered by our latest generation of racks such as outstanding corrosion and pressure resistance. The T-Rack 3.0 S requires up to 60% less space than conventional racks. And the provision of separate filtrate headers means that each row can be operated as a separate filtration line.

New flocculant range

BASF's water treatment chemicals include flocculants and coagulants especially designed for the solid/liquid separation in industrial and municipal waste water treatment.

Zetag ULTRA is the recently introduced range of ultra-high molecular weight cationic flocculants and complements the existing BASF flocculant range. Because of its effective bridging capabilities, Zetag ULTRA shows advanced dewatering performance.

It offers strong floc integrity to withstand high shear forces making it especially effective for the use in centrifuge applications as well as for dissolved air flotation. Zetag ULTRA has proven its excellent performance in more than 50 extensive plant trials worldwide. BASF customers report that cake solids of dewatered sludge increased on average by 15%. Other customer cases show a significant dose savings of up to 20%. Furthermore, the centrate has an improved capture rate.

Protecting the source

BASF is dedicated to ensure that all plants and processes that utilize water are able to operate at peak efficiency.

Products from BASF help to keep plants running smoothly for as long as possible, without the need for frequent maintenance. For example, BASF has developed the Antiprex® product line. Biodegradable Antiprex CM prevents mineral build-up and Antiprex MSA is used as an environmentally beneficial cleaner.

BASF's proven solutions effectively fight the problems of scale, deposit of solids, corrosion, bio-fouling, foam formation and impurities in water. BASF provides the most advanced chemical solutions and services to formulators and service companies making us the preferred partner for various industries involved in water treatment.
