Introduction: Surfactant or surface active agents are slightly soluble in water and cause foaming in waste treatment plants and also in the surface waters into which the waste effluent is discharged. During aeration of wastewater, these compounds collect on the surface of the water bubbles and create some problems in waste treatment. Methods: In this study, surfactant, turbidity and COD in the industrial wastewater of the company, Paksan was studied. Study was done at pH ranging between 2 and 13 in a pilot scale process. Results: The results showed that ferric chloride has higher efficiency in removal and it is possible to decrease the surfactant, turbidity and COD Conclusion: The efficiency of ferric chloride in coagulation process for removal of surfactant, turbidity and COD from industrial wastewater is better than ALUM, Lime and Ferric Sulfate,
