The effect of surfactants

Surfactants or tensides lower the surface tension and therefore allow the blending of two substances, which cannot normally be mixed, e.g. as in oil-water mixtures. The ensuing foam enlarges the surface and further dirt particles can be dissolved and absorbed. The tensides from SEPAR CHEMIE are used in industrial and municipal waste water purification. The waste water is separated from the often oily dirt particles with the help of various waste water techniques (e.g. lamella separators).

Tensides from SEPAR CHEMIE

SEPAR CHEMIE supplies the following tensides:

  • TP 0602: alkaline cleaning agent

•    Cleaning of containers
•    Truck cleaning

Handling of surfactants

The required dosage depends upon the medium to be treated and must be determined in laboratory tests.
