Ion exchange resins solutions for power industry
The Challenge: Protecting your valuable equipment and machinery from corrosion, scaling and other damage is crucial.
Water condensed from steam is part of the steam cycle and is common in a conventional or nuclear power plant. Resinex ion exchange resins are frequently used to remove or exchange dissolved ions and suspended matters (like iron oxides) so as to protect the equipment and ensure the efficiency of the unit.
Demineralisation is the process of removing virtually all dissolved solids (TDS) from water and producing essentially pure water. Demineralisation unit must include both cation and anion exchange processes. Mixed bed demineralisation consists of strong acid cation resin and strong base anion resin which are mixed homogeneously when in service. Boiler makeup water, process water for production operations and high purity rinse water are examples that require demineralised water.
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.
Surface waters are becoming highly scrutinised for the contaminants that they contain caused by natural occurring elements or industrial industry waste discharge or by-products. Contaminants can cause harmful effects to people and animals that consume the water. Various ion exchange resins are used to clean low levels of contaminants from drinking water for safety and taste.
