WASTE WATER TREATMENT
Minus 40 mesh BRZ™ is an advanced, surface water
turbidity and silt sorption and flocculation
product developed for municipal drinking water
plants and industrial pumping stations. Auger or
slurry fed, product doses of 2-3lb/1000 gal of
surface water is used (higher turbidity water
requires higher doses). The sorbed/flocculated
solids are granular (1.2-1.4 Sp. Gravity,
w/water = 1.00); readily settle; and easily

clarification performance; decreases

BETTER SOLID/LIQUID SEPARATION THAN ALUM AND
The specific gravity of the alum/polymer
floccules is 1.03 and this results in many
“pin flocs” that do not settle. The specific
gravity of the BRZ™/iron compound system is
1.4 and this results in a clean solid/liquid
separation and interface giving better
BRZ™ SYSTEM REAGENT NOT BULKY:
The alum/polymer reagent is bulky and hard
to handle compared to the BRZ™ system.
SPENT BRZ™ REAGENT CAN BE LAND APPLIED:
The spent alum/polymer reagent must be taken
to a licensed land fill.
LOWER COST WITH BRZ™:
Although the reagent cost of the BRZ™
systems is about 10% higher than the
alum/polymer system the overall cost is much
less due to easier dewatering and the lower
solids management cost.
BETTER REMOVAL OF HEAVY METALS, CERTAIN
HYDROCARBONS, CHLORAMINES, AND AMMONIUM.
