GEL TYPE STRONG ACID CATION EXCHANGE
Ion exchange resins either anionic or cationic are widely used in chemical,
pharmaceutical and food industries. Use of these resins is an
essential need in petrochemical complexes , refinery
industries, power plants and many other
units that require demineralized Water. In
addition , other special types of these resins are used as catalysts
in some chemical processes.
IPPI-CGX8 is a gel type strong acid cation exchange resin in the sodium form and is supplied in the fully swollen moist form.
IPPI-CGX8 is a bead form, standard crosslinked Styrene-Divinylbenzene cation resin that has a high capacity and good physical and mechanical properties. Manufacturing stages including polymerization and sulfonation in both laboratory and pilot scales are successfully conducted in IPPI.
IPPI-CGX8 was produced in pilot scale using 300 and 200 lit. Glass-lined reactors for polymerization and sulfonation reactions respectively.
IPPI-CGX8 is primarily used in the softening of industrial water.
