Water Treatment


In order to protect metals and tubing against corrosive attack, Diatom indicates the use of Sodium Silicates, which form a protecting membrane in the surface of the area, inhibiting corrosion in systems of potable water and water for industrial use. Silicate also prevents water coloring, acting as a “scavenger” of iron and manganese.

Another product indicated is the Diatomite, produced by Diatom, which act as filters in potable and industrial water treatment and in industrial waste treatment. Diatomite forms a pre-layer in the wall of the filter, improving filtering flows, as well as helping to retain particulates, eliminating turbidity.
