The BioMag™ and CoMag™ Systems from Evoqua infuse magnetite into conventional biological and chemical floc making it heavier and dramatically improving settling. The BioMag™ System is applied to activated sludge systems.  It increases capacity up to 300% without new tankage, provides control over secondary sludge blanket depth, and enables nutrient removal below 3 mg/L TN and 0.2 mg/L TP.  The CoMag System is a perfect technology for tertiary treatment and CSO and storm water management.  It routinley delivers TP < 0.05 mg/l, TSS < 2.0 mg/l, and Turbidity < 1 NTU.   Both systems easily integrate with existing or planned facilities and can substantially lower costs compared with conventional systems.
