DamClear is used for clarification of water on construction sites, in stormwater retention ponds, mine water dams, farm & stock dams and irrigation dams. Clays such as bentonite and montmorillonite, which are classified as swelling clays, are very stable when dispersed in water. Left untreated they may take many weeks to naturally clarify. Similarly, water contaminated with ultrafine and colloidal clays can also be very slow to clarify. DamClear rapidly clarifies difficult to treat turbid water. This product is suitable for applications that are environmentally sensitive. The treated, clarified water, will in most cases be suitable for direct discharge to sewer and to rivers & streams.
