Rapid Acting Liquid Flocculant
FAST-FLOC® is a fast acting liquid flocculent that reduces the time needed to remove suspended solids such as silt and other micron-size particles within the slurry, settling them to the bottom of the excavation. The settled fines can then be removed from the bottom of the excavation with a cleanout bucket or airlift system.
Prior to adding FAST-FLOC, colloidal fines are suspended in the slurry fluid—not actually dissolved in solution. Mixing FAST-FLOC into the drilling slurry accelerates the flocculation reaction causing the suspended particles to group and entangle into larger clumps which settle at the bottom of the slurry fluid.
