QUICKFLOC in bulk form is delivered on dumper trucks that are preferably unloaded by rear dumping.

QUICKFLOC is stored and dissolved by the soaking method. The heart of the facility is an underground tank with acid-proof lining that simultaneously acts as a storage and dissolving tank. This soaking tank is designed to permit dumping and accommodation of at least one full delivery batch (e.g. 25 t).

TI 2.01 describes the fundamental structure of soaking tanks, as well as the storage and metering of QUICKFLOC.



FERROGRANUL products are dried, free-flowing ferrous sulfates that can be handled in the same way as conventional bulk materials.

Tower silos of all kinds with a useful volume upwards of approx. 30 m3 are open to consideration for receiving and stocking the delivered granules.


KRONOS iron salt solutions are ready-to-use precipitants and flocculants
Iron salt solutions are stored in acid-proof tanks that should have a useful volume of at least 20 m3 and comply with the official regulations regarding the storage of water-hazardous substances.
Metering diaphragm pumps are preferably used to withdraw the liquid products from the tank and transport them to the metering point.
Complete metering facilities are supplied in practice, including all suction- and pressure-side fittings and piping.


Notes on unloading of dangerous goods

Various rules and regulations apply when dealing with dangerous goods
Transport by road is governed by the German Ordinance on the Transport of Dangerous Goods by Road, Rail and Inland Waterways (GGVSEB/ADR). Within the GGVSEB, the recipient (e.g. the sewage treatment plant) and the unloader (employees of the sewage treatment plant) have a number of tasks and duties.

This information is intended to outline to you the essential obligations.

Treatment of surface water with iron salts

Suspended and turbid matter is eliminated during the treatment of surface water with iron salts to produce drinking water, process water and cooling water.

FERRIFLOC ferric chloride sulfate solution is used with preference for flocculation during water treatment. It complies with all the requirements of European Standard EN 891 and is particularly characterised by its purity and constant composition.


Water treatment | Water purification

Water is the basis of all life.

Particularly when drinking water is obtained from surface water, KRONOS iron salts assist its initial purification to drinking water quality. Industry is the largest consumer of water in Germany. In order to meet the demand, surface water is often treated for use as process water and cooling tower make-up water.
Our iron salts are used as precipitation and flocculation agents to transform the turbidity materials in the water into a mechanically separable form.
The precipitation of wastewater constituents, such as phosphates or arsenic, also plays a role in water treatment. Thus, arsenic can be precipitated by iron salts as poorly soluble arsenates.
