OC-275 Organoclay Media


CCG’s OC-275 is part of a series of selective water treatment adsorbents that bond with hydrocarbons, organics and other contaminants upon contact. Extensive field application and laboratory analysis has shown OC-275 is capable of removing a wide range of contaminants to non-detectable levels. The resulting discharge water meets or exceeds typical regulatory requirements. This media is a4 x 10 mesh zeolite impregnated with no less than 125 millimoles dimethyldioctadecylammonium chloride per kilogram of zeolite.


For treatment of hydrocarbons, heavy metals, and other organic contaminants, the optimal solution is efficient oil and water separation followed by one of the OC series products. Since the media is capable of adsorbing up to 70% of its weight in hydrocarbons, the life of OC-275 inside a filtration vessel is shorter than OC-200. The media can also be used as a stand-alone treatment process or upstream of other filtration processes and media such as reverse osmosis, activated carbon and resins. TYPICAL
