Used In Coagulation and flocculation
The water is sent into large basins where the alum clings to other chemicals and impurities in the water (coagulation), causing them to form larger, and heavier particles called floc. Gravity causes these larger particles to settle to the bottom. Thus, the Refined Aluma is also used for purifying water.
