Flocculation Definition

Back to Top

Flocculation is a physical and chemical process which is used for the removal of the
visible sediments and material from water which makes it a colloidal solution. It can
be done through agitation or by adding flocculating agents. Colloidal solution is a
heterogeneous mixture in which the collidal particles can't be seen by the eye and
can pass through a filter paper. Swimming pool water and waste water contain
visible sediments.

In the flocculation process, the polymers are used as flocculating agent for the formation
