ZeroChlor recommends APF® APF All Poly Floc Multi-Spectrum Coagulant and Flocculant
APF® is a multi-spectrum coagulant and flocculant that removes pollutants from solution and flocculates fine suspended solids, such as skin cells and bacteria, into large particles that are easily removed by AFM® (Activated Filter Media).
No single flocculant or coagulant can remove everything from the water. APF® is a precise combination of 6 different electrolytes and polyelectrolytes to cover the widest possible range. Dissolved constituents of water make up 80 % of the oxidation demand and suspended solids around 20%. Everything that is filtered out does not need to be oxidized.
When the correct flocculation is used in combination with AFM®, oxidation demand is reduced and RedOx potential increases. In chlorinated systems unwanted disinfection by-products are reduced by up to 80%.
What is coagulation and flocculation?
Coagulation; is the process of dragging chemicals out of solution to form colloidal suspensions of small particles. In order to make coagulation work, APF® must be mixed instantly and aggressively with the water, this is why we inject the APF directly into the main pump just prior to the impeller. If this injection process is not followed, the coagulation stage is missed, organics will remain in solution, and APF® jumps to flocculation.

Flocculation; is the process of bringing colloidal suspensions of small particles (organic detritus, bacteria, and parasites) together to form larger flocs that can be easily removed by AFM®. APF® imparts a positive charge to particles that are then attracted to the negatively charged surface of AFM®. Flocculation takes several minutes and the particle floc is very fragile, so the water must not be subjected to aggressive agitation.
Performance and Benefits
APF® is required to optimize the removal of bacteria, parasites such as Cryptosporidium, Giardia, and Mycobacterial parasites (Candida, Aspergillus, etc).
Economic and Environmental Improved filtration reduces oxidation demand by up to 80%. It also means there will be fewer disinfection by-products formed. Operating costs will be lower and there will be less of an impact on the environment.
Chlorine-free treatment in Biological Systems APF® is an important aid in chlorine-free water treatment of aquatic mammal LSS in combination with AFM® filtration.
