Zeolites can be used in different grain sizes for different applications:
– as an adsorbing agent, it is used for physical retention of organic and inorganic contaminants.
– as a filtering agent, in its chemically pure form, it is used for the removal of Cs+, Pb2+, NH4+, Cu2+, Zn2+, Cd2+, Ni2+ and other cations.
– as a filtering agent, in its chemically modified forms, it is used for more selective filtration of other heavy metals (Fe, Mn,..), anionic species (As, Cr, F-, Cl-,..) and organic molecules.
DND Biotech, with the brand Zeocel Italia, can supply the right type of zeolite for the specific needs of each contaminated site. We also recommend and offer the possibility of running preliminary tests on the contaminated matrix of interest, which are conducted in our laboratory facilities. We believe that lab tests are essential in order to identify the most suitable type of zeolite and the optimal operating conditions to obtain the most efficient and effective water filtration strategy for every specific application.
