the process by which colloidal particles are destabilized in order to form
flocs through the process of flocculation, enabling them to be separated from
the water. Through the application of the applicable product, destabilization
then the next step whereby individual destabilized colloidal particles are
aided to collide with one another, allowing them to coagulate in order to form
larger floc particles in the water. Such floc particles can then be removed via
filtration or sludge pumps.
