Purafloc is a liquid Powder Activated Carbon blend that has been developed locally since 2015 and is Clinty Chemicals’ answer to MCPA removal. MCPA (2-methyl-4-chlorophenoxyacetic acid) is an issue arising from the agriculture industry where this herbicide is spread by farmers to kill weeds without harming crops. The run-off that reaches the rivers is required within the UK to be reduced below the limits of 0.1µg/L.

Traditional tertiary treatment options to meet these low limits require large capital expenditures. Purafloc is an alternative that provides an Opex solution, reducing the need for large infrastructural changes. Other benefits include the reduction of;

  • TOC removal
  • Turbidity
  • UV254
  • Colour
  • THM’s

If Purafloc is of interest for a specific emerging contaminant issue on your site, please get in touch so that we can arrange a trial.
