Ion exchange resins solutions for chemical processes sector - Chemical & Pharmaceuticals - Fine Chemicals
The Challenge: Providing defined quality water for the chemical processing industry while maintaining maximum efficiency and minimising waste.
A wide range of ion exchange resins from Resinex are highly effective at removing impurities created by the various processing stages and can control purity levels in processing streams.
The electrolysis of hot saturated brine for the manufacture of chlorine gas and sodium hydroxide has advanced in the recent years in favour of membrane electrolysis cells. Membrane plants must ensure that high quality brine is fed into the membranes cells, particularly with a low level of alkaline earth metals. Ion exchange resins are used to remove these earth alkali metals from the brine.
Purification is the key application for ion exchange resins. The resin beads purify several different streams like water, chemical, sugar, juice, pharmaceuticals, proteins, and much more. IX resins can selectively remove contaminants from gold to perchlorate. There are endless possibilities for purifying any type of stream with IX technologies.
Process water is a common name for water which can not be classified as drinking water and which is used in connection with technical plants and processes of the production. Ion exchange resins are used to treat the process water to achieve a defined specification of the liquid (mainly water) for further production processes or to bring it back into the loop.
