What we do > Chemicals and Equipment

With ZK3,
win the bid.


At ZK3, our chemistry and equipment help our partners work faster, smarter, and win more business. Mitigate risk, decrease processing time, and save money by minimizing every job’s waste volume.



Zk3’s innovation and industry-leading chemistry brings alternative, superior solutions to the chemical processes our customers rely upon.

Do more with less.

As a provider of both specialty and commodity chemicals, Zk3 does more than warehouse products for quick delivery to clients. (Though we do that, too.) We help you achieve greater results with a smaller dosage of chemicals, thanks to our proprietary products and smart applications that reduce sludge volumes while increasing the efficiency of dewatering equipment. The result? Reduction in transportation and disposal liabilities and costs.
