High purity, low sodium, natural, zeolite, mineral (14” x 40” mesh) that is classified as GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) under 21CFR Part 182.2729 and 40 CFR Part 180.1001 with ANSI/NSF Standard 61 Listing.
The material is mined, crushed, dried and double-screen, sized to produce a high quality filter media with Uniformity Coefficient (D60/D10) of 1.7 having high through-put capacity at low differential pressure.
The alumino-silicate, crystal, mineral material has surface micro-mineral projections with 0.25 to 10 mm spacing that effectively trap suspended solids in water streams. The surface, micro-projections, together with the high surface area makes this material an ideal, water filtration media. The material is mineralogically and thermally stabile to 500° C.
Advantages of Zeolite versus conventional sand, anthracite and multimedia filter media are below.
|Bulk Density:||55 lbs. per cubic foot|
|Mesh Size:||14” x 40”|
|Surface Area:||Avg. 24.9 m2/g|
|Thermal Stability:||Stable to 500° C|
|Filtration Nominal Rating:||<5m|
Used as a water/liquid, filter bed (or tank) material in lieu of sand/anthracite, pecan shells or other, coarse filtration material to efficiently remove suspended solids and fine turbidityparticles. The filter granules physically filter and trap the suspended solids. In addition, the granules remove a wide range of colloidal and soluble, inorganic metallic, contaminants by surface sorption, chemical-binding, charge-neutralization, coagulation, reactions and/or ionic, ion-exchange phenomena.
