Activated Alumina Balls For Fluoride Removal, Arsenic Removal, Water Treatment
Activated Alumina – Basically it is a porous and solid form of aluminum oxide otherwise known as Al203 or alumina. It is being well known among desiccants as all the desiccants are used for the same purpose, it has varied application and due to its wide surface area, it is mostly recommended.
|Activated Alumina Desiccant Typical Physical Properties|
|Crush Strength||N ≥||150||180||200||230|
|Specific Surface Area||m2/g||300-330|
|Attrition Rate||wt% ≤||0.1|
|Static Water Adsorption||wt% ≥||18|
|The interval value of the indexes above are on the basis of the different grade of Activated Alumina Desiccant|
Activated alumina is used for a wide range of adsorbent and catalyst applications including the adsorption of catalysts in polyethylene production, in hydrogen peroxide production, as a selective adsorbent for many chemicals including arsenic, fluoride, in sulfur removal from fluid streams (Claus Catalyst process).
Activated alumina is also widely used to remove fluoride from drinking water. In the US, there are widespread programs to fluoridate drinking water. However, in certain regions, such as the Rajasthan region of India, there is enough fluoride in the water to cause fluorosis. A study from the Harvard School of Public Health found exposure to fluoride as a child correlated with lower IQ.
Avoid moisture, avoid scrolling, throw and sharp shocking during transportation, rainproof facilities should be readied.
It should be stored in dry and ventilated warehouse to prevent contamination or moisture.
