Vital Super Clear is a high quality, environmentally sustainable, rapid acting coagulant for application to High Efficiency Sediment (HES) basins, traditional sediment basins, sewerage treatment plants, groundwater treatment and wash down bays. Vital Super Clear is an Aluminium Chlorohydrate-based product.

Fine colloidal clay particles washed from construction sites by excess water and stormwater runoff are known to carry significant environmental pollutants such as nutrients and pesticides to receiving water. Particles will remain in a suspension for long periods unless chemically modified by a clarifying agent to promote flocculation and settlement. This high strength industrial water treatment product works by neutralising the charge of these particles, allowing them to coagulate and then settle out of suspension.

Concentrated, high strength, low dosing required;
Cost effective in comparison to conventional methods;
Easy to apply liquid – no dust (un-like gypsum);
Can be automatically dosed via dosage system or manually administered;
Excellent treated water clarity;
Settles quickly;
Works over a wide pH range (6-9) without requiring correction;
Reduced alkalinity consumption with very little pH drop;
Significantly low aluminium residuals in the treated water;
Very low levels of trace elements;
Forms inert sludge, re-usable on site;
Non-Dangerous Goods classified;
No sulphates.

Sustainability Outcomes

Vital Super Clear is 100% Australian made and is renowned in the industry for producing highly effective results while maintaining environmentally sustainable attributes. Aluminium compounds are common in most soils and are the principal components of Bauxite and Gibbsite, which are common, naturally occurring minerals. When diluted with high volumes of water, Vital Super Clear will hydrolyse rapidly to form aluminium hydroxide, which can be expected to become a part of the natural soil profile if not recovered.

When used as a water treatment during the construction of projects, Vital Super Clear can deliver an immediate reduction of sediment discharges into receiving water and may help toward achieving L1-3 in ENV-1 and ENV-4 ISv2.0.

Vital Super Clear contains minimal impurities and independent testing has indicated that it does not add heavy metals into treated water in contrast to other coagulants. This allows treated water to be reused on site, resulting in considerable cost and water savings. Whole Effluent Toxicity Testing carried out on Vital Super Clear treated water, concluded no toxic effect to aquatic organisms (refer to SDS). Vital Super Clear may significantly minimise the volume of water typically used on projects, which may assist in achieving L1-3 in Wat-1 ISv1.2 and ISv2.0.

Ensuring that treated water leaves the site with reduced sediment and nutrient loads. Vital Super Clear effectively reduces traces of E.coli, phosphorus and other nutrients. The deposited particles are systematically removed from the sediment basin and the sludge can potentially be applied to productive land as a soil ameliorant. This contribution to functioning ecosystems may be a factor in achieving L1-2 in ECO-1 ISv1.2 and associated ISv1.2 and ISv2.0 credits.
