ResinTech - Model SBG1-UPS - Narrowly Graded Chloride Form Type 1 Gel Strong Base Anion Resin
ResinTech SBG1-UPS is a narrowly graded chloride form type 1 gel strong base anion resin. SBG1-UPS is a uniform particle size resin with high void space and low coefficient of drag. ResinTech SBG1-UPS is intended for use where resin uniformity is an important attribute to help reduce pressure loss or prevent strainer plugging. SBG1-UPS is supplied in the chloride form or can be special ordered in the hydroxide form (when ordered as SBG1-OH-UPS).

ResinTech SBG1-OH-UPS can be used as the anion component in a variety of demineralization applications where a hydroxide form anion resin is coupled with a hydrogen form cation resin. SBG1-OH-UPS is suitable for high operating temperatures and for high flow rates encountered in polishing condensate and other low TDS waters such as RO permeate. SBG1-OH-UPS provides low TOC and low silica leakage in ultrapure demineralizers.
ResinTech SBG1-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. SBG1-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 prevent channeling and other distribution problems. Packed beds typically have limited freeboard (only a few inches with the resin in the swollen form).
Trace Contaminant Removal (U, Cr, As, Se, ClO4)
ResinTech SBG1-UPS has high capacity and can be used to remove a variety of trace contaminants, even when that contaminant is not highly preferred compared to the other bulk ions in the feedwater. Useful capacities are obtained when the feedwater TDS is substantially less than the resin’s internal TDS. Uranium, chromate, and perchlorate are particularly well removed. Arsenate and selenate are well removed but can be chromatographically displaced by sulfate and other ions.
ResinTech SBG1-UPS can be used in the chloride cycle to reduce nitrates along with sulfates. Regeneration is accomplished with sodium chloride brine, in a fashion similar to water softeners. Although high operating capacities and high salt efficiency can be obtained, there is also the possibility of nitrate dumping. Use of chloride form anion resin reduces pH during the early portion of the exhaustion cycle. When treating waters with high hardness the brine dilution and displacement waters should be softened and a low hardness salt used to prevent scaling during regeneration.
High capacity resins such as ResinTech SBG1-UPS have high affinity for divalent anions such as sulfate, provided the feedwater TDS is not greater than about 5,000 ppm. At higher TDS the resin loses its affinity for sulfate and begins to prefer chloride. Regeneration is accomplished with sodium chloride brine in a fashion similar to a water softener.
