Calcium Polysulfide has been in use for more than a century, but primarily for agricultural applications. Today, it is routinely used for effective treatment of heavy metals and other contaminants commonly found at clean-up sites.
Remotox is a polysulfide based solution that consists of multiple sulfur compounds which strongly bond to heavy metals in water. This product has proven effective even when treating chelated and/or complexed metals. It also removes chromates without preliminary reduction of the chromium to its trivalent state.
Chromium, zinc, copper, lead, cadmium and mercury are among the most common metal contaminants found on clean-up sites. Remotox precipitates these highly soluble metals as less soluble, less toxic metal sulfides. Chrome (VI) is reduced to chrome (III) which then precipitates as a hydroxide.
Remotox for the removal of a wide range of heavy metals and other potentially harmful compounds commonly found in laboratory waste streams. Reducing hazardous waste on site to the minimum quantity can save transportation and disposal cost. Please contact us to obtain a Remotox sample for your own evaluation.
Remotox for capturing heavy metals from flue gas and scrubber wastewater. The product has proven to remove high levels of mercury from scrubber solutions. It also removes lead, copper, thallium, nickel, zinc, iron, silver and other metals commonly found in power plant waste streams.
