The Magnetic Ballast Clarification (MBC) removes fine particles from water using magnetic seeding technology.


  • A small amount of magnetite is added to the water where it is attached to fine pollutant particles with a polymer.

  • Permanent rare earth magnets quickly remove these combined pollutant/magnetic particles from the water.

  • The magnetite is then mechanically cleaned by separating it from the pollutant particles with a shear mixer and reused.

  • The magnetite is free from fouling by organics and is reused over and over again.

  • There is no additional pressure drop through the system when the magnetite gets dirty.
