Abrimix is an in-line high shear reactor technology, that utilizes flocculants for the treatment of wastewater.
Abrimix is a wastewater treatment technology that utilizes high shear reactor technology to drive the completion of reactions. Abrimix headquarters are in Johannesburg, South Africa, with global distributors and partnerships
The product comes in four different sizes with varying processing volumes: 5, 10, 30, and 60L/hr. It is designed to be effective at separating and removing fats, oils and grease, suspended organic and inorganic solids, and the soluble component of biological oxygen demand, to maximize usable water recovery from wastewater.
Target regions include Netherlands, South Africa, Tanzania, United Kingdom, Slovenia, and Nigeria. The manufacturer is also expanding into India and the Philippines as of 2020.
This product is distributed by BioPipe Global in India and Philippines, Abrimix Europe BV in Netherlands (and Europe), and Abrimix Pty Ltd in South Africa.

This product relies largely on chemical flocculation to effectively treat water. Raw water is fed into the system via a pump, conditioning reagents are added as well as air. The water continues through the system to an in-line high shear reactor, which contains flocculants to remove contaminants in the water. Flocculant polymers are then added to the solution before passing into the suspended solids flotation tank for final processing. Treated water is then released via a tap at the base of the tank, and sludge waste is removed from the top of the tank.
The product comes in four different sizes with varying processing volumes: 5, 10, 30, and 60L/hr.
Technical support is provided by the manufacturer, both online and in-person.
The product has an expected lifetime of over 10years.
The manufacturer cites rapid and effective separation of suspended solids (organic/inorganic) from a liquid medium and accelerated precipitation and specific dissolved salts and metals.
No formal testing has been completed as of 2020.
As of 2020, testing is currently being undertaken by the University of Western Cape.
No known safety hazards with appropriate use and maintenance of the product.
The manufacturer provides advice on pre-treatment methods for water sources dependent on water quality concerns.
