Metal Precipitants

Ecologix precipitants are expressly formulated to precipitate metal ions from a variety of industrial process wastewaters. Such wastewaters frequently contain chelants and other complexing agents that surround the metal ions and prevent the chemical reaction that converts the ions into insoluble particles. Our precipitants chemically "break" such chelating/complexing rings allowing metals to be precipitated out of solution. Request a Quote

Metal Precipitating Chemicals and Blends.

Thiocarbonate Based Precipitants

PTR-1 Basic thiocarbonate organic compound that forms organo-metallic precipitates. BUY NOW pdf icon

MSDS
PTB-25 A non-toxic precipitant of heavy metals designed to replace traditional DTC chemistry. Testing shows its ability to bind and precipitate heavy metals can be more effective than DTC at similar dosages, and is much safer to aquatic organisms than carbamate chemistry. Along with PTB-6, the PTB-25 blend is frequently used to extract precious metals and industrial metals from water. Common target metals include gold (Au), silver (Ag), palladium (Pd), platinum (Pt), copper (Cu), zinc (Zn), cadmium (Cd), lead (Pb), mercury (Hg) and others. BUY NOW pdf icon
MSDS
PTB-50 A thiocarbonate, proprietary formulation designed as a non-toxic precipitant of heavy metals from industrial process wastewaters, including metals from chelated/complexed environments. It is a powerful replacement for commonly used toxic DTC/carbamate-type products. When compared to such products, tests show that PTB-50 has twice the precipitating activity at a similar dosage.

Sulfide Based Precipitants

PSB-9 A liquid fomulation (thiocarbonate / Sulfide blend) designed for the reduction of hexavalent chromium and the removal of heavy metals from wastewater in one step and is a key component of an overall heavy metal removal program. Replaces sodium metabisulfite, hydrosulfite and bisulfite. Produces significantly less sludge, requires little or no coagulation (is a self coagulating product) and is user friendly (pourable and pumpable). Is a non-toxic replacement and is environmentally friendly. BUY NOW pdf icon

Carbamate Based Precipitants

PDB-2 PDB-2 is an organic liquid precipitant (sodium dimethyldithio carbamate) formulated for precipitating heavy metals, particularly chelated and complexed ions, in process and other wastewater. The precipitating reaction forms insoluble organometallic compounds with minimal sludge generation. This product contains no disulfides. BUY NOW pdf icon
