Sewage Technology

AXCHEM DEUTSCHLAND supplies under the name AXFLOC flocculants
for flocculation and separation of solid inorganic and / or organic ingredients with facilities for solid / liquid separation. It is specially manufactured products in solid and liquid forms with different charge strengths, cargo types and molecular weights. Our product range also includes inorganic precipitating agents on the basis of polyaluminium (PAC) and product combinations with organic cationic polymers to improve performance of sewage. Among specialties, we provide solid and liquid splitting agent in the treatment of waste waters, which are burdened with dispersions, emulsions, and colors. Similarly are defoamers for foam destruction and foam prevention.
The AXCHEM DEUTSCHLAND – sales representatives will help you with problem solving and process improvement in municipal and industrial waste water treatment. Supporting laboratory and field tests are part of our daily work. By using the appropriate measurement we determine the most economical product for you and ensure the smooth application. For detailed information see our wish and safety data sheets and the information “Polysinth in practice – Info Prax.

Plant Engineering

AXCHEM DEUTSCHLAND delivers solvents and dosing machinery for its products. Many solid and liquid product types need to be solved prior to use, diluted or treated specially. We will help in the selection of appropriate equipment.
By using a suitable mixer tube, the use of our products are in optimal conditions.
Whether you need to thicken a drum or the sludge to be dewatered by a belt filter press, decides the requirement profile. We are happy to advise you.

AXCHEM DEUTSCHLAND provides solid and liquid column for the treatment of waste waters, which are burdened with dispersions, emulsions, and colors. To optimize the chemical dosage is our special tube mixer available. The resulting solids can be separated in cracking plants. By pneumatic pulse systems (Pulsair), large tank volumes are mixed perfectly.


Large volume mix economically

The homogenization of extremely large volume tank or of particularly difficult products with high viscosity or very high solids prepared with mechanical systems are often significant problems. For such applications are suitable pneumatic pulse Pulsaire systems.

Belt filter press

Since 1994, the new generation of Monobelt – belt filter press with great success for the continuous drainage of large quantities of sludge on municipal wastewater treatment plants and many industrial applications is used. The combination of pre-thickener (drum) and a special filter cloth, this machine is simple construction, despite other complex machinery in nothing.

Dissolving and dosing

Many processes need to be dosed chemicals released before the dose, diluted or treated according to specific methods. AXCHEM DEUTSCHLAND supplies equipment for processing of liquid and powder flocculants and provides special equipment to customer specifications.

Tubular reactor
Mobile -tube reactor

The AXCHEM DEUTSCHLAND -tube reactor can treat wastewater in continuous operation. Applications include wastewater treatment for their multiple dosing chemicals are needed.

These include:
Coagulant e.g. PolyDADMAC or polyaluminum chloride (PAC)
Flocculants such as for example Polyacrylamide ‘Polyacrylate (Polysinth – types)
Acids and bases for pH regulation
Adsorbents such as betonite or activated charcoal.

Laboratory and Process

Optimization process of paper making
