A better way to increase pH and Alkalinity
Theia’s Icarus system is an innovative and inexpensive means of raising the pH and alkalinity in any water stream. Unlike lime, there are no feeding or storage issues. Unlike caustic, there is no chemical to store and no handling concerns. The media can be stored dry almost indefinitely and cannot freeze.
The Icarus system represents a substantial reduction in both operating and capital costs for alkalinity making the removal of ammonia through air stripping or biological means a more economical option for operators of high strength wastewater and leachate treatment systems.
Icarus media is effective in removing a number of heavy metals as well as Phosphorus and phosphates.
