Chitosan for flocculation & clarification use is made through special process, which has advantages over traditional alcohol precipitation process in that it’s natural and pollution-free with good retention of effective components.
The amino in chitosan molecule react with acid and form the high polymer polyelectrolytes that carry positive charge, which through electrostatic interaction with the mass suspended solids in solution, result in the “absorption and bridge effect” that turns tiny particles into large particles for subsidence. This is known as the flocculation technology.
This technology is easy and simple to handle with little time consumption and low cost. It is safe, nontoxic and pollution-free. No extreme requirement is needed for the equipment or process conditions while the efficiency of adsorption and clarification stays high with retention function of active components.
