Drinking clean and fresh water is the most important thing for us because our body needs 70% of water. As per a few researches, globally over 200 million people consume fluorinated water and with this 70 million people suffer from harmful diseases. This creates opportunities for solution providers like the adsorbent and desiccant manufacturers. These solutions effectively work for providing fluoride-free drinking water. Adsorbents and desiccants like the activated alumina balls are the perfect choices for removing fluoride from drinking water.
Activated Alumina Balls for fluoride removal
Activated alumina balls are highly effective water filtration media that has been used for many years to remove impurities from water. It is a porous, granular material that is made from aluminium hydroxide. The desiccant has a large surface area and a high capacity for adsorbing a wide range of contaminants, making it an ideal choice for water treatment applications.
One of the primary benefits of activated alumina is its ability to remove fluoride from water. Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that is added to many municipal water supplies to help prevent tooth decay. While fluoride can be beneficial in small doses, excessive exposure can lead to health problems such as dental fluorosis, skeletal fluorosis, and other issues. The desiccant is able to remove fluoride from water to levels well below the recommended limits set by the World Health Organization.
In addition, activated alumina remove fluoride from water and also remove a wide range of other contaminants from water. These include heavy metals such as lead, copper, and mercury, as well as organic compounds such as pesticides and herbicides. They are also effective at removing chlorine and other disinfectants that are often added to municipal water supplies.
The desiccant is a relatively low-cost water filtration media that is easy to use and maintain. It can be used in a variety of water treatment applications, including point-of-use filters, whole-house filtration systems, and industrial water treatment plants. Activated alumina filters are also available in a range of sizes and configurations, making them suitable for a wide range of applications.
Our activated alumina balls like the Alsorb-F grade are the popular media for water filtration. The particular grade effectively removes fluoride from water and the de-fluorinated water is passed on for further consumption. Alsorb-F is an aluminium oxide that is highly porous and exhibits high surface area. The desiccant contains cation lattice discontinuities giving rise to localized areas of positive charge; this makes alumina attract various anionic species.
Features of Activated Alumina Balls
- Higher Surface Area
- High Resistant Ability to Thermal Shock
- Never Shrink or Swell
- High Mechanical Strength
- Effective at High Temperature
- Regenerated and Reused
Overall, activated alumina is an effective and affordable water filtration media that is well-suited for a wide range of applications. Whether you are looking to remove fluoride, arsenic, heavy metals, or other contaminants from your water, activated alumina is an excellent choice that can help to ensure the safety and quality of your drinking water.
