MIRAFLOC works best at a pH between 8-10. Raise the pH to between 9 and 10 using either Pharagent S or caustic soda. With some agitation, add MIRAFLOC. The amount required will depend on the amount of suspended solids. Usually, .025% to .1% is sufficient. Once MIRAFLOC is added, recheck the pH to ensure that it is still 8-10. At this point, the floc will either sink or float depending on the specific gravity of the suspended solids.
Of the floc sinks, decant off the clear water and either return to your process for reuse or send down the drain. If the floc floats, either take the clear water from the bottom or skim off the floc.
The floc will have to be discarded in accordance with federal, state, and local regulations, depending on the characteristics of the waste being generated.
