Coagulation is the process of inducing particle settlement and separation in a solution with suspended, stabilized solids. The suspension consists of charged particles that do not aggregate or bind together. In order for coagulation to occur, the charges must be neutralized so the particles no longer repel one another.
A hybrid coagulant is a single product that combines the benefits of other coagulants and is often used to coagulate more challenging waters such as those with a fluctuating UVT reading. These compounds feature new functionalities and may be the most effective options for destabilizing suspensions and inducing particle aggregation.
