Zeolites are hydrated aluminosilicates in crystal structure, capable of absorbing many different types of gases, odors, moisture, petrochemicals, ammonia, heavy metals, low-level radioactive elements and a multitude of various solutions.
Zeolite's highly porous structure provides large surface areas on which chemical reactions and cation exchanges can take place. The cavities and channels inside zeolites occupy up to 50% of its volume, which enables them to capture particulate contamination down to 4 microns in size.
The main principle of Zeolite (clinoptilolite) is Ion Exchange. It has a natural negative charge which gives it a high cation exchange capacity.
Thanks to its eco-friendly structure and low cost, zeolite (clinoptilolite) has a wide range of applications:
