DIMET™ | Sodium Dimethyldithiocarbamate Solution
Dimet is a metal precipitating agent used to remove metals from water/wastewater streams.
It is particularly useful in the treatment of wastewater from plating operations. The product is effective over a wide pH range and, when used as recommended, provides nearly complete precipitation of metals even in the presence of other chelating or sequestering agents.
Dimet is composed of a 40% aqueous solution of sodium dimethyldithiocarbamate. The sludge cake produced from its use as a heavy metal precipitant is compact, highly insoluble and easily dewatered. Its low solubility means that it is less susceptible to leaching.
