Oil Water Separators / Specialty Chemicals / OrganoClay Products

Organoclay is manufactured by modifying bentonite, which is a chemically altered volcanic ash that consists primarily of the clay mineral , with quaternary amines, a type of surfactant that contains a nitrogen ion. As the organoclay is introduced into water, the quaternary amine is activated and extends perpendicularly off the clay platelets into the water. A chlorine or bromine ion is loosely attached to the carbon chain. Since the sodium ions that were replaced by the nitrogen are positively charged, they bond with the chlorine ion, resulting in sodium salt that is washed away. The result is a neutral surfactant with a solid base, which is the organoclay. The hydrophilic end of the amine dissolves into the oil droplet because "like dissolves like," thus removing that droplet from water.

Ecologix OrganoClay - MCM-830P is a modified clay mineral designed for use as a filter media in process and wastewater treatment. The product effectively removes a wide range of hydrocarbons and trace amounts of heavy metals from water. Unlike competitive filter media, Ecologix OrganoClay - MCM-830P does not swell or blind when sorbing contaminants, so it need not be blended with anthracite filler.

MCM-830 can be used as post treatment to oil-water separators or as pre-treatment to liquid carbon filtration systems resulting in cleaner water and longer run times than with carbon alone and therefore decreased operational costs.
