The Nutri-Mg++ process is a proprietary strategy that enables municipalities to enhance their treatment of potable water while protecting their water distribution assets and fortifying their water supply with magnesium, an essential nutrient for human health. Nutri-Mg++ reduces the need for corrosive, acidic flocculating and settling chemistries, such as alum and iron salts, improves the performance of filtration within the potable treatment process, eliminates the need for pH enhancement modifiers, such as lime and caustic soda, and can optimize corrosion and scale inhibitors throughout the distribution system. Nutri-Mg++ has proven beneficial to flocculation in drinking water treatment, offering multiple treatment enhancements and plant benefits.
IMPROVED PUBLIC HEALTH
Type 2 Diabetes
High Blood Pressure
Heart Disease & Stroke
ENHANCED WATER TREATMENT PROCESS
Substituting divalent Magnesium Hydroxide for the sodium from monovalent Caustic Soda, Soda Ash and/or other chemistries, results in multiple plant benefits including:
Enhanced Coagulation, Flocculation & Sedimentation
Improved TOC removal in Bio-filtration
Reduced inorganic sludge
Substituting Magnesium Hydroxide for Caustic Soda, Soda Ash and/or other chemistries results in improved process performance, as well as improved safety for handlers:
Sodium from caustic increases hypertension and is hazardous in-plant
Calcium adds temporary hardness and potentially, scale
Magnesium adds permanent hardness and no scale
Nutri-Mg++ directly impacts your bottom line through improved plant performance, including:
Reduced addition of alum, iron and caustic
Reduced polymers addition
Fewer chemical deliveries required
Nutri-Mg++ can be added at a variety of insertion points in your treatment process, depending upon your specific conditions and where you are likely to receive the greatest benefit. Nutri-Mg++ delivers multiple benefits and improves your process in a number of ways – reducing costs and enhancing a variety of process points.
EASE OF IMPLEMENTATION
Incorporating Nutri-Mg++ into your treatment process is not complicated, time consuming, or costly, and there is minimal disruption to your current process.
STEP ONE: After initial review and consultation, we will conduct jar tests at your facility to confirm the effectiveness of Nutri-Mg++ for your specific needs.
STEP TWO: A Nutri-Mg++ Feed Tank is delivered to a selected location at your plant. This process is generally completed in a full day, as long as a suitable pad is available for installation.
