Flocculants (otherwise called flocking agents), are chemicals that advance/ catalyze flocculation by forming colloids and other suspended particles in fluids to form a total, or aggregate, shaping a floc. Flocculants are utilized as a part of water treatment procedures to enhance the sedimentation or filterability of small particles/ suspended forms. For instance, a flocculant might be utilized as a part of swimming pool or drinking water filtration to help evacuation of microscopic particles which would some way or another cause the water to be turbid (shady) and which would be troublesome or difficult to uproot by filtration alone. Numerous flocculants are multivalent cations, such as aluminum, iron, calcium or magnesium. These positively charged atoms connect with negatively charged particles to diminish the hindrances/ barriers to aggregation/ collection.
