Technical Support and Laboratory Services

Marlyn provides customised technical support for each product and application including technical advice, laboratory testing, and mixing and dosing systems.

Flocculant

Our range of polyacrylamide flocculants varies in terms of ionic charge and molecular mass.  It is therefore important that each client application is tested with a range of flocculants to identify the optimum product or programme for each application.  Practical evaluations include settling rate of the suspended solids and turbidity of the supernatant after treatment.  Testing takes place on site and in the laboratory.  On-site technical support continues after the implementation of a flocculant programme to ensure that the application remains optimal.

At Marlyn we continually seek to improve the range of flocculants available for our clients’ applications.

Activated Carbon

All incoming carbon is checked for hardness, activity, platelets and sizing to ensure consistent quality.  We use in house as well as external laboratories to supply full carbon analyses on customer demand.  Tests include:

  • Gold adsorption analysis for carbon activity
  • XRF – X-Ray diffraction for organic and inorganic content and metal loading
  • Size grading
  • Platelets
  • Hardness

Our gold activated carbon is coconut shell-based and is supplied in 8×16 and 6×12 mesh sizes.  Marlyn also supplies coal and wood based granular and powder carbons.

Quality Analysis of Product Strength

Quality tests are performed on the hydrochloric acid and caustic soda that we supply.  This includes tests on strength, density, and pH.
