Leading The Way In Green Chemistry Using Patented Natural Flocculents

By-product recovery and utilization has been one of the major areas in which Water & Oil Technologies, Inc. has assisted customers to achieve successful liquid/solid separation of their particular process wastestream.

With ever increasing environmental discharge regulations confronting us all, we at Water & Oil Technologies, Inc. have found alternatives to land application and on-site composting of sludges. Natural Flocculents can be successfully used with or without pH adjustment to achieve solids recovery from process waste, thus producing an environmentally cleaner supernatant or subnatant discharge.

Our Natural Flocculents are currently sold to poultry, hog, cattle, cheese, dairy, food, grain, and oil processors for the flocculation of solids for recovery of fats, oils, grease, minerals, and/or proteins. By utilizing our AAFCO and FDA approved Natural Flocculents, the recovered fats, oils, grease, minerals, and/or proteins can be sold for animal feed ingredients, fertilizer or used in fuel components.

Recovery Benefits of Natural Flocculents

  • FDA and AAFCO approved for use in animal and poultry feeds, whereas acrylamides and polycrylamides (synthetic polymers made from monomers) are not.
  • Can usually be used without the aid of acid or caustic to achieve flocculation of solids from process waste.
  • Compatible with acids or caustic if so desired to be used to obtain liquid/solid separation.
  • Can be used alone or in conjunction with coagulants to recover solids containing fats, oil, grease, minerals and/or proteins.
  • Can be used to treat solids containing phosphates and nitrates.
  • Totally biodegradable which make their use environmentally acceptable.

Complete Water Treatment Services

Raven Knight offers water consulting services and feasibility services through its partners which provide complete analysis and needs testing prior to deployment of industrial or municipal technology. This results in significant savings and deployment of correct technology to suit your application. Our needs analysis determines exactly the system that you will need to treat the specific type of water for your project, whether it be a desalination project, water treatment plant treating water originating from surface water or well water, as well as waste water sources including human, animal or various brine waters from a multitude of industries. We aim to have no discharge of any environmental contaminates and have focused on identifying tested yet leading edge technologies to recycle waste components into recovered products.

Waste Water Recycling

Dave Mahaffey of Mahaffey ITI has been involved in waste water for over 40 years. He is the owner also of Action Pumping in Yucca Valley, California. Thirty years ago he was instrumental in the approval of California’s Grey Water Recovery Legislation. He has built numerous grey water, sub-irrigation systems in the High Desert area.

Atmospheric Water Generators


Atmospheric water generators produce water based on the temperature and humidity in the air. Each of our units can produce up to ten gallons of water per day based on the dew point in the area where the unit is placed. These units produce the purest water available on the planet. They have been tested over the last 8 years and are proven and reliable. They are available in both the up-right and counter top model. We also offer larger units that can produce 25 to 2,000 gallons of water per day for larger projects.

We can also incorporate a green house to increase water production in dryer areas with the opportunity to reuse treated waste water to increase household water production.
