  • Introduction to Ion Exchange Part 1

    IMPURITIES IN WATERWater is often referred to as the 'universal solvent' as it will dissolve small amounts of everything it touches. Water collects or dissolves a variety of mineral salts, organic compounds and suspended solids as it flows over the earth's surface and through the ground. These impurities make water undesirable for use in many applications. It is, therefore, important to ...

  • White paper - Ion Exchange Theory

    Ion exchange is the removal of unwanted “charged” particles, called ions, from raw water. In this process the ions are transferred to a solid particle, called an ion exchanger, which accepts these ions while returning an equal number of desirable ions. The exchangers are made of porous plastic resin, which gives them many “exchange sites”. In the basic reaction, an ion ...

  • Improving the biological stability of drinking water by ion exchange

    To guarantee a good water quality at the consumer’s tap, natural organic matter (NOM) should be (partly) removed during drinking water treatment. The objective of this research is to measure the effect of NOM removal by ion exchange on the biological stability of drinking water. Experiments were performed in two lanes of the pilot plant of Weesperkarspel in the Netherlands. The lanes consisted of ...

  • New ion exchange processes for brine purification

    Three new ion exchange processes have recently been developed for purification of brine. The PDP (precipitator dust purification) process removes chloride contamination from byproduct sodium sulphate recovered from the electrostatic precipitator ofakraft pulp mill's recovery boiler. The BDS (brine de-sulphurization) process removes sulphate impurities from chlor-alkali cell brines, while a novel ...

  • An Evaluation of Magnetic Ion Exchange (MIEX®) for NOM Removal

    A new process for the removal of natural organic matter (NOM) was developed in Australia by Orica Watercare and South Australian Water Corporation. It employs a strongly basic anion exchange resin to remove NOM from water. In the first stage of the process, the (180 μm) MIEX® resin is mixed with the water to be treated and its small size encourages rapid removal of NOM. The resin beads also ...

  • How can I measure temporary and permanent water hardness?

    Hard water is water with high levels of dissolved minerals, and usually occurs in areas where limestone and chalk are common. These minerals can be divided into two types, and so hardness is often considered in two categories – permanent and temporary water hardness. So how can we measure water hardness? Can we measure temporary and permanent ...
