Electro coagulation system (ECS)
An Electro coagulation system (ECS) is the process of destabilizing suspended, emulsified and dissolved contaminants in waste streams by introducing an electrical current into the medium. ECS not only cleans water in a cost effective manner but also conditions it for specific reuse. In times when water difficulties are becoming increasingly common, this technology has the capability to provide a safe and economical method for treating wastewaters. Additionally, the volume of sludge produced with ECS treatment is relatively much less than of conventional chemical precipitation method and hence considered as an economical & viable replacement option.
In ECS, electrons are added to the solution by passing current through solutions from a power source. The electrons destabilize the particles in the water creating oxide sludge when sufficient activation energy is present. This oxide sludge repels water and filters/dewaters it. The ECS treatment occurs at surface interface between liquid and conductive sacrificial material. Anode and cathode flat plates are used as sacrificing materials and the flat plates placed in a distances which are close enough to lessen the clogging caused by large particles in the water, and close enough to lessen the amount of voltage required to move the electricity through the liquid. The voltage between the anode and cathode pares set automatically to the voltage desired between the pairs and the reaction takes place on the surface between liquid and blades.
Our collaborative effort with experienced and dedicated organisations in the field enable us to design and manufacture cost effective ECS systems which is compact, efficient and with high quality. The selection of sacrificing materials and the power control is the major factor which decides the efficiency of the system. We use a variety of selective materials as cathode and anode depend on the specific requirement and our collaborative effort of achieving best power control source ensures that the operational cost and energy consumptions are as minimum as possible. Our ECS Plants are designed for easy operation and easy replacement of sacrificing blades and voltage differences applied between the blades are synchronised in such a way that the optimum energy requirement is not compromised and same way, no energy wasted. With our ECS configuration, there are many advantages
- Less capital cost due to optimized design
- Less space requirement compare to conventional treatment method.
- Maximum efficiency achieved by selecting perfect selection of blades
- Lo power requirement due to design
- Minimum sludge generation
- Treatment with very minimal chemical addition and/or without any chemical.
Elctrocoagulation process has been proven system for a variety of wastewater treatment applications such as paper mill waste, metal plating waste, heavy metal waste , tannery effluent, canning factory effluent, steel mill effluent and other high COD, BOD contaminated waters.

- Removal of suspended and colloidal solids
- Phosphates and nutrient removal
- Removal of hydrocarbons.
- Removal of COD and BOD
- Removal Silica
- Removal of color, organics and other suspended containments.
