ResinTech - Model CG10-UPS - Cation Exchange Resin Strong Acid Gel 10% DVB, Na Or H Form
ResinTech CG10-UPS is a sodium form 10% crosslinked gel strong acid cation resin. CG10-UPS is a uniform particle size resin with high void space and low coefficient of drag. ResinTech CG10-UPS is intended for use where resin uniformity is an important attribute to help reduce pressurea loss or prevent strainer plugging. CG10-UPS is available in the sodium or hydrogen form (when ordered as CG10-H-UPS).

ResinTech CG10-UPS is a 10% crosslinked cation resin optimized for use in condensate softeners, high flow rate applications, and other applications where high physical and chemical durability are more important than high chemical efficiency. CG10-UPS is proven to have a long useful life, even in heavily chlorinated waters where other cation resins do not last.
ResinTech CG10-UPS can be used as the cation component in a variety of demineralization configurations where a hydrogen form cation resin is coupled with a hydroxide form anion resin. The high density of CG10-UPS provides ideal separation in polishing mixed beds. CG10-UPS has higher total capacity and lower chemical efficiency compared to CG8-UPS.
ResinTech CG10-UPS has a very narrow particle size range. The uniformity allows a slightly smaller bead size to be used which results in faster exchange of ions, more efficient regeneration and lower leakage. CG10-UPS is ideal for packed beds and other types of countercurrent ion exchangers where consistent operation is important cycle after cycle. Higher void space and minimal fine mesh beads provides low pressure loss and helps prevents channeling and other distribution problems. Packed beds typically have limited freeboard (only a few inches with the resin in the swollen form).
