Activated Alumina Balls
Activated alumina balls are highly capable of adsorbing moisture and water vapors from the applications where air purification is must to obtain the clean product. These balls are produced by heating the aluminum oxide to the high temperature. These balls are odorless, non-toxic, insoluble in water and tasteless that makes this desiccant an ideal choice for several applications used in petrochemical and acid industry. They are helpful in drying of cracked gas, ethylene, propylene, hydrogen and others. They have the ability to adsorb polluted materials as well such as hydrogen sulphide, sulphur oxide, hydrogen fluoride.
These balls are manufactured by the process named as dehydroxylation from aluminum hydroxide. They are available in different types of sizes which can be used based on the requirements of the particular application and the moisture capacity.Activated alumina balls are perfect desiccant for variety of applications where high moisture adsorption is required. They act as a powerful air drying desiccants which are commonly used for air drying, separation and purification of number of industrial applications. The industries include chemical, petrochemical, air and gas, fertilizer etc.
These balls have the tendency of never to shrink, swell or become soften when they adsorbed the water. They are work efficiently in preserving the products from damaging effects of humidity, mold or constructional flaws of leakage etc. They are highly demanding due to the unmatched quality and features that make this desiccant a perfect choice for applications given below.
Applications of Activated Alumina Balls:
- Compressed air dryer system
- Catalyst bed support applications
- Drinking water defluorination
- Adsorbent in hydrogen peroxide solution
- Recycling process in alkylbenzene production
- Desiccator and purifying agent
- Drying of organic liquids
- Drying of hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, CO2 and other contaminants
- Air drying with PSA or TSA process
