Groundwater Remediation Services

Redux Technology, a division of Azure Water Services LLC, is the only water treatment chemical supplier to focus solely on the groundwater treatment market. Our products control fouling in groundwater systems and are the only such products developed specifically for use in groundwater systems. Appropriate formulations and extensive technical support ensure the most cost-effective, site specific, deposit control program for your site.

Deposit Control Chemicals

Redux provides comprehensive deposit control programs: this means we will provide critical operations advice as well as chemicals that work. We sell three kinds of products: 1) deposit control formulations which prevent fouling, 2) cleaners and de-scalers which remove existing fouling, and 3) precipitation chemicals for removal of iron, hardness and other inorganic foulants.

Analyses & Consultation

Redux provides unique technical service devoted to analysis and characterization of site-specific fouling mechanisms, in order to develop an appropriate and cost-justifiable deposit control program. Services include initial site surveys, water and deposit analyses, alternatives review, benchtop and pilot work, and ongoing troubleshooting.

Deposit Control Chemicals (DCC’s)

These products prevent the formation of solids (such as iron oxy-hydroxides, hardness scales, or biomass) and are added continuously, at ppm levels to recovered groundwater prior to other treatment operations. A variety of formulations are designed for specific types of common fouling. These blends may include sequestrants, dispersants, crystal modifiers and reducing agents. Redux formulations are designed to be highly effective, yet can be discharged to the environment with treated groundwater.

Cleaners and de-scalers

More aggressive than preventative formulations, these products are designed to remove existing fouling. Included in this product line are Redux well rehabilitation products, the only ones designed specifically for remedial wells. Depending upon the nature of fouling, cleaners may be acidic or alkaline, oxidizing or reducing. Removal of deposits generally requires that equipment be taken off-line. Cleaning solutions are typically recirculated through affected system components. Spent cleaning solutions are not intended for discharge without further treatment.

Precipitation Aids

These products enhance the removal of inorganic foulants (such as iron or calcium) as a pretreatment step to eliminate fouling. Often, removal of these materials is difficult in remedial situations, but sometimes it is the only option. Redux precip-aids reduce the residence and reaction times typically required (reducing footprint), and make solids separation and dewatering easier.
