SALH-LTA / Type A (Liquid)


SALH-LTA / Type A (Liquid)

Liquid Aluminum Sulfate Type A (SALH-LTA) is a solution of excellent quality, manufactured from a raw material rich in aluminum (free of iron) and sulfuric acid, through a controlled process that guarantees its quality. Excellent results are obtained with the SALH-LTA when it is used in the clarification of water for human consumption and in the treatment of effluents from industry in general; especially in the removal of phosphorus, when it is in the form of orthophosphate.

    Metals of Toxicological Concern

    In regard to impurities, the Venezuelan Standard COVENIN 1350-2006 establishes the following: "Aluminum sulfate should not contribute more than 10% of the maximum value allowed in the current national health standards for drinking water quality". Thus, for a maximum dose of 150 mg/liter of aluminum sulfate, there are the specifications shown in the following table vs. the typical values of the impurities in the product.

    Metal 10% of the Norm (mg/l) Typical Values (mg/kg) Specification
    Antimony 0.0006 <0.02 4
    Arsenic 0.001 2.2 7
    Barium 0.07 <0.02 467
    Beryllium 0.0003 <0.02 3
    Cadmium 0.005 <0.02 2
    Chromium 0.005 <0.02 33
    Copper 2 <0.02 13333
    Lead 0.001 <0.02 7
    Mercury 0.0001 <0.02 1
    Selenium 0.001 <0.02 7
    Thallium 0.0002 <0.02 1
