Handichem™ addresses the safety and environmental concerns associated with liquid chemicals.
Chemicals are provided as solid concentrates in 5kg recyclable plastic bottles rather than liquid in drums.
These Handipak® solid concentrates are dissolved as needed into a small plastic reservoir using a reliable Handifeed™ mixing board. The solution is then pumped into the system being treated, just like with traditional liquid chemicals. Standard controllers and chemical feed pumps are utilised to administer the product to the system.
Most of the raw materials in our solid concentrates are 100% active. In contrast, liquid formulations only contain a small amount of actives, blended and shipped with water in drum form. In order to stabilise these actives during shipment and storage, caustic soda or potash are added. This does not help treatment, they only aid in solubilising other ingredients and are eliminated from the solid formulas.
