Chloride-free NICASAL® – an available alternative to PAC products

Currently, the demand for PAC based products is very high. In addition, there is a lack of hydrochloric acid, which has led to a further product shortage and an price increase of flocculants and precipitants based on PAC. FeIIICl-flocculants are also hardly available at the moment. A turnaround is not expected in the coming months.

In addition to aluminum sulphate as an alternative to PAC, our chloride-free NICASAL® could be a useful replacement, depending on your application. NICASAL® is available at our production site in Duisburg, Germany.

The application areas for NICASAL®:

  • Papermaking/ board production
    • Ideal for the use in closed water circuits
    • the chloride-free product NICASAL® was developed in particular to avoid corrosion damage
  • Industrial wastewater (glass, paint and coating industry, food industry, heavy industry, mining)
  • Waste water treatment from car washing plant

Further advantages with NICASAL:®

  • Prevention of odor nuisances caused by toxic H2S and/or organic acids
  • No corrosion of stainless steel components due to chloride-free product
  • Potential for closing the water cycle system
  • Reduction of biocides and functional additives
  • Reduction of chemical oxygen demand (COD) and reduction of salt input (no chloride)

  • Liquid aluminum sulphate is used as a substitute for FeIIICl for the use in phosphate precipitation in wastewater treatment plants.
  • Use of aluminum sulphate in sewage treatment plants with solvent bunkers (previously in use for iron sulphate (FeIISO4)).
