Activated Alumina

Adsorbent Purification and SepArations

Activated Aluminas are synthetically produced amorphous oxides from aluminum trihydrate. The end product is a beaded material or powder with highly adsorptive capabilities. Activated Aluminas make an excellent dessicant with capabilities of reducing dewpoint of air to -40C while special grades can reduce the dewpoint to less than -100C. .  It is used as a Claus Catalyst condense sulfur out of natural gas and in refining sulfur plants.

With special selective adsorbents, we can now remove a variety of contaminants from styrene, polyethylene, ethylene, light hydrocarbons and air.  These dessicants are very nonreactive with low heats of adsorption. Surface areas and surface areas can be controlled during manufacturing to allow for custom purification applications.
