Historically, wastewater treatment facilities have used caustic soda or hydrated lime products in the treatment process to neutralize the acidity and provide the necessary alkalinity for the biological systems to maintain proper ammonia removal.
However, there has been a shift towards the use of MAGNESIUM HYDROXIDE as a safer alternative for the necessary pH and alkalinity support with increased efficiency. Non-hazardous and non-corrosive, Mg(OH)2 has proven to produce less sludge while providing more alkalinity on an equal weight basis as compared to the alternatives.
Garrison Minerals, the producers of AlkapHix®, continues to serve on the front lines of this transition with custom equipment, manufacturing of high-quality Mg(OH)2, and dosing consultancy.

Mg(OH)2 has shown to increase sludge density, thus lowering the volume making it easier to dewater. This can extend the life of the filtration and equipment. Learn more!
A more stable price, historically, and greater neutralization with less product... no brainer! Also, the use of Mg(OH)2 has shown to reduce the need for supplementary polymers and pH adjusters.
Because of the lower solubility, the chances of overdosing the treatment of wastewater is reduced while still producing a better quality effluent prior to dispersal.
Magnesium hydroxide is non-hazardous and non-corrosive when used properly. It requires little precautionary containment or special handling. In the event of excess or spillage, Mg(OH)2 can be disposed of quickly and easily without environmental impact.
