FLOCMASTER™ Mixing Technology

Sludge is produced at various steps of the wastewater treatment process. Dewatering sludge is an essential step in meeting environmental and total cost to operate (TCO) goals. Poor dewatering leads to high water content of the sludge, which has a great impact on the sludge volume, disposal route and cost. Flocmaster mixing technology combined with a Nalco Water Sludge Dewatering Program integrates all your chemical, equipment, and service needs for an optimum sludge management operation.  


Flocmaster Mixing technology enhances traditional polymer programs by incorporating patented mixing technology along with Nalco Water’s leading chemistries and dosing systems. 

Flocmaster has a documented impact on overall TCO:

  • 60 – 90% freshwater reduction
  • 24 – 47% increase in polymer efficiency
  • Up to 50% increase in plant throughput
  • 3.2 point average increase in cake solids
  • Overall TCO reduction up to $850,000 ($135,000 average)
