NOBLE Products

Better Chemistry and Service at Work for You!

NOBLE Technologies, Inc. manufactures a line of formula-rich coagulant replacement products and complementary flocculants to meet a range of industrial needs.

Starting with our flagship products, coagulant replacement NOBLE 1 and flocculant NOBLE 60, these formulas offer:

Because ours is a simple process, our products are easy to use.

You'll find less disruption of the manufacturing process, and no need for system upgrades to switch. Plus, our ingredient-rich formulas are more consistent to keep your operation running smoothly day after day.

NOBLE 1

Features
  • Stable liquid formula makes it easy to apply
  • Economical to use due to its concentrated form
  • Effective over a wide range of pH applications
  • Effective in chlorinated systems without degradation by high levels of free chlorine
  • Forms a low volume, dense, highly charged, cationic floc which is effectively flocculated with anionic coagulant aids to form a dense, heavy, fast settling floc
  • Less blow-down of sludge is required resulting in more usable water and increased throughput
  • More effective clarification resulting in low turbidity and low color levels in the effluent
  • Reduces sludge generation
Principal Applications

Noble 1 is a cationic polyelectrolyte exhibiting unique properties which make it particularly effective —

  1. in replacing aluminum, iron and calcium salts as a cationic donor in the coagulation process
  2. in metal precipitation processes because of its ability to interrupt the mechanism of chelation, sequestration and crystal modification, thereby reducing the solubility of metal in solution
  3. in significantly reducing waste generation as it contributes essentially no dissolved, and very small amounts of precipitated solids
  4. as an efficient emulsion breaker in many systems allowing settling or skimming of contaminants in waste treatment systems with minimum sludge contribution

Because of its properties, NOBLE 1 is ideal for use in treatment processes such as:

  • Metal finishing waste
  • Printed circuit processing waste
  • Municipal waste treatment
  • Miscellaneous water preparation and wasted applications require individual testing and process determination

Application Noble 1 is extremely reactive and should be diluted at least 10:1 with clean water prior to application. Metering with a corrosion resistant, positive displacement pump to a highly agitated area of the process stream ensures adequate distribution and mixing and produces best results.
Health and Safety Information Noble 1 is not expected to be toxic by ingestion or by skin contact. This product can cause dryness to the skin by astringent action. Eye irritation can occur due to its astringent action. Refer to Noble 1's Safety Data Sheet to obtain more information.
Handling and Storage Storage in glass, stainless steel, plastic or epoxy-lined vessels is recommended. Do not use copper, aluminum or iron in feed or storage systems. Spills can be readily flushed with copious amounts of water.
If Noble 1 freezes during shipment or storage, it may be thawed and used after agitation to ensure homogeneity.
Noble 1 is shipped in concentrated form. If evaporation should occur and the product becomes solid and glass-like, it may be redissolved to restore full activity.
Shipping Noble 1 is shipped in : 55 gallon, 525 lb. NET, non-returnable drums, and 275 gallon, 2625 lb. NET ToteBins. Shipment is FOB our plant in Perkasie, PA. For more information, contact your Noble representative.
EPA Status Noble 1 coagulant replacement is manufactured from materials approved for use by the United States Environmental Protection Agency as "coagulant aids" in the treatment of potable water at a maximum concentration of 40mg/1 applied dosage. Noble 1 has not been reviewed as a manufactured product itself by the US EPA and does not appear on any approved lists published by the US EPA.

NOBLE 60

Principal Applications Noble 60 is intended for use as an aid in forming large, settleable flocculant formed by the use of polymeric or metallic coagulants. Typical usages are in the processes of removing metals in precipitation, gravity settling, non-potable water clarification, mechanical de-watering and other such processes. Usage at pH' from 9.0 - 11.0 are representative, although use outside this range has been found to be effective at times.

Health, Safety and Environmental Information Noble 60 is non-toxic by ingestion or by absorption through the skin. Noble 60 is non-irritating to the eyes and skin—based on tests using laboratory animals. Before using this product, refer to Noble 60's Safety Data Sheet for further information. Noble 60 has minimum environmental impact. A one-percent solution will contribute approximately 100mg/L of BOD5 and 9000mg/L of COD to a system.
Handling and Storage Spilled polymer is very slippery and should be scooped up, wiped up or absorbed on inert material before flushing thoroughly with water or steam. Bleach is also helpful in breaking down the polymer and removing it from surfaces. Store in plastic, epoxy-lined, stainless steel or glass-lined vessels. Material must be kept dry until ready for use.
Shipping Noble 60 is shipped in 50 lb. bags, FOB Perkasie, PA. For more information, contact your Noble representative.
