High Speed Magnetic Clarification is ideal for a wide variety of applications, including:

  • ​Phosphorus (P) effluent as low as 0.05 mg/l*
  • ​Increased Settling of activated sludge MLSS ​by 67% - 786%**

"High Speed Magnetic Clarification was our lowest cost option to meet metal discharge limits."

​What Is MSS?
Magnetic Seeding and Separation (MSS) is a high speed magnetic clarification system that removes suspended solids from water.  With ballast clarification, fine particles are attached to a heavy material such as sand with a flocculating polymer.  This makes the particles heavier and therefore they settle quicker in water.  The quicker the particle settles the smaller the clarification equipment.
MSS replaces sand ballast with a material that is ferromagnetic (meaning the material can be made magnetic and/or interacts strongly with a magnet).  The most cost effective material, which exhibits a strong attraction to a magnet, is magnetite.

"...a disruptive and differentiated technology."

Major International Water Treatment Co.

Magnetite is the favored magnetic ballast because:
• Low cost
• Non-toxic
• Strongly ferromagnetic
• Fully oxidized (will not rust in water)
• Readily available
• High specific gravity (5.3)
