MAGNAFLOC® 1727 is a coagulant that comes in liquid form and is characterized by its highly cationic properties. It is supplied as a viscous liquid. This product is primarily employed to enhance the efficiency of solid-liquid separation processes. It can be used either independently or in conjunction with an anionic flocculant to facilitate the separation of solids from liquids.

    Application and Usage Information
    • Predominantly used for effective solid-liquid separation in which Magnafloc 1607 is applied separately to, or in combination with, an anionic flocculant.
    • Magnafloc 1607 is an effective clarification aid for gravity separation and filtration processes on various mineral and/or organic substrates.
    • The correct dosage of Magnafloc1607 depends on the conditions involved in the particular process.
    • Typically this is in the range of 1 – 10 ppm but it will normally be determined by test work on the substrate.
    • On a plant scale, a stock solution concentration of 0.1 to 1.0 % as supplied is recommended for addition to the system.
    • This is readily obtained by either batch mixing with water in a stirred tank, or alternatively by metering the concentrated product directly to the system and diluting inline.
    • In the latter case, a metering pump of the positive displacement type with adequate corrosion-resistant characteristics is recommended.
    • For optimum results, Magnafloc 1607 should be added to the system at a point of sufficient turbulence to ensure good initial dispersion and adequate mixing.
    • This point will be prior to the clarifiers or filters and, ideally, the turbulent flow zone at the addition point should be followed by a quiescent zone with gentle flow conditions to allow coagulation to occur.
    • In situations where an adequate addition point does not exist, turbulence may be induced by introducing an in-line mixer or a baffled zone etc.

    Safety & Health

    Health and Safety Precautions
    • Magnafloc 1727 exhibits a very low order of oral toxicity and does not pre- sent any abnormal problems in its handling or general use.
    • It is nevertheless recommended that inhalation, ingestion, skin contact and eye contact be avoided.
    • As with all cationic polyelectrolyte polymers this product exhibits toxicity towards fish.
    • It is important that precautions are taken where the product may come into direct contact with fresh water courses, streams and rivers.

    Handling and Storage Information

    Storage & Shelf Life:

    • Product as supplied. Under normal storage conditions, Magnafloc 1727 is stable for up to 12 months in its original packaging.
    • Preferably the product should be stored at temperatures in the range of 5 – 25 °C.
    • The recommended storage periods for dilute solutions (0.1 – 1.0 %) of Magnafloc 1727 are 2 – 4 days.
    • Storage of solutions beyond the recommended periods may cause some decrease in product efficiency.

    Shipping & Handling

    • Magnafloc 1727 is supplied in 204 kg plastic drums or 1020 kg intermediate bulk containers.
    • Magnafloc 1727 is moderately corrosive towards mild steel, cast iron, aluminum and zinc surfaces and use of these should be avoided.
    • Recommended materials of construction for storage tanks, dilution tanks etc, include stainless steel, fiber-glass, polyethylene and polypropylene.
