Water Solutions & Specialty Chemicals (WSSC)

Chemtrade’s WSSC business segment operates an extensive North American plant network, producing both traditional industrial chemicals and customized solutions for our customers. The Water Solutions segment consists primarily of inorganic salts, used as coagulants by municipal and industrial customers to treat water and wastewater. Additionally, the Water Solutions team produces a group of products used by poultry growers, as litter amendments, to control ammonia volatilization and improve bird health and productivity.

Along with coagulants and poultry litter amendments, WSSC produces Specialty Chemicals used in a wide range of industries including the paint (ink, pigment, etc.), oil & gas, pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, food & beverage, and tantalum refining industries.

Ferric Sulphate

Chemtrade’s Ferric Sulphate is supplied to customers across North America through our network of production sites. Our broad Ferric Sulphate production capabilities allow us to serve the vast North American market most economically. Importantly, we are very selective of the raw materials used in our manufacturing process and work to minimize heavy metals, such as manganese, which can impact our customers’ product quality.

Chemtrade also works with customers to develop and supply special formulations of Ferric Sulphate with additives to address specific requests or provide a treatment benefit. Our custom blends are trademarked as Fer+Ion®.


The Fer+Ion® products line are custom Ferric Sulphate blends formulated to help our customers meet treatment goals. In water and wastewater treatment operations, Fer+Ion® products are proven to:

  • Provide additional Total Organic Carbon (TOC) removal and lower Disinfection By-Product (DBP) formation

  • Decrease alkali consumption
  • Ease operations via consolidation of required chemicals
