Achieving Superior Effluent Quality Without Filtration or New Tankage


Embrace gravity, defy convention. Learn about the latest advancements in wastewater and water treatment—the BioMag Ballasted Biological Treatment System and the CoMag Ballasted Treatment System. This webinar will provide a greater understanding in approaches to solve capacity, ENR and wet weather challenges.

Join Siemens to learn how these technologies use magnetite, which is twice as dense as sand, as a ballasting agent to increase the settleability of solids thereby overcoming clarification bottlenecks and process upset conditions. Case study data will be presented.

The BioMag System:

  • Increases secondary treatment capacity up to 300%, with no additional tankage
  • Achieves stringent nutrient removal limits

The CoMag System:

  • Dramatically enhances particulate removal in primary and tertiary treatment, with no additional tankage
  • Achieves 0.05 mg/L total phosphorus using conventional clarification processes
