Activated Alumina for Chemical Processes and Environmental Protection
- Aug 12, 2018 -

Activated aluminas are produced from feedstocks by controlled thermal treatment in order to eliminate most of the water in the crystal lattice. The resulting crystal phase is XR activated alumina, gamma alumina with a boehmite crystal structure.

Specific features of XR activated alumina:

Large Specific Surface Area

High Pore Volume

Defined Pore Size Distribution

Specific Catalytic Reactivity

Specific Adsorptive Capacity

High Crushing Strength and therefore, Low Dust Formation


XR activated alumina applications: 
In order to solve specific adsorption or catalytic problems, Compalox can be modified as a tailor-made product by variation of the activation process or by using dopants meeting the customer's requirements.

Typical applications of XR activated alumina include:

Desiccant (Drying of Organic and Inorganic Gases and Liquids)

Catalyst in Hydrogen Peroxide Production

Purification of Process Gases and Liquids

Enrichment and Recovery of Defined Substances from Diluted Systems

Acid and Residue Monomer Adsorption in Reaction Streams based upon Gases or Liquids

Air Purification

Water Purification by the Adsorption of Arsenic, Fluoride, Phosphate and Heavy Metals

Chromatography
