BASF Globally Launches New Cationic Powder Flocculant Range



Published January 7, 2014
BASF is globally launching a new ultra-high molecular weight cationic powder flocculant range with Zetag ULTRA for solid/liquid separation in industrial and municipal waste water treatment.

Zetag ULTRA has been developed combining BASF’s long-standing application expertise in water solutions with its extensive polymer research know-how, focusing on specific customer requirements while considering environmental aspects. Zetag  ULTRA complements the existing BASF flocculant range to better serve future equipment trends in the dewatering market.

Because of its effective bridging capabilities, Zetag ULTRA shows advanced dewatering performance. It offers strong floc integrity to withstand high shear forces which makes it especially effective for the use in centrifuge applications as well as for dissolved air flotation.

“ Today industrial and municipal water treatment plants are challenged to achieve maximum performance under increasing cost pressure.” says Marcus Fuest, Global Industry Marketing Water Solutions . “ Zetag ULTRA has proven its excellent performance in a variety of extensive plant trials worldwide. Our customers report that cake solids of dewatered sludge increased in average by 15%. Other customer cases show a significant dose saving of up to 20%. Furthermore the centrate has an improved capture rate. Zetag ULTRA i s the ultimate fit to answer our customers’ needs.”

The new high performing flocculants allow waste water treatment plants operating more efficiently and effectively. The unique molecular architecture of Zetag ULTRA offers customers a clear cost advantage through operational cost savings. The achieved higher cake solids are environmentally beneficial as less energy is required for transportation, disposal and incineration, which has a positive impact on the carbon footprint of the treatment facility.

Zetag ULTRA is one highlight that will be featured at this year’s IFAT 2014, the world's leading trade fair for water, sewage, waste and raw materials management, being held in Munich, Germany, from May 5 to 9, 2014. At booth #237/336 BASF will put on display innovations and solutions in the field of water treatment.

“We look forward to connect with our customers at the IFAT 2014” says Matthias Halusa, Vice President of BASF’s Water Solutions business. “The introduction of Zetag ULTRA is an important milestone for positioning BASF as a leading provider of innovative chemical solutions in the water industry worldwide supporting sustainable natural resource management.”
