AMBERLITE™ Ion Exchange Resins are available in a very wide range of chemical compositions and polymer structures and have been used for decades in a high-value applications including water treatment in industrial and power generation plants.
AMBERLITE™ HPR1400 H Ion Exchange Resin is a Uniform Particle Size, Gel, Strong Acid Cation Exchange Resin for Condensate Polishing Applications for the Nuclear Power Industry. It is designed specifically for condensate polishing applications in PWR nuclear power generating plants using ethanolamine (ETA) when highest resin purity and water quality are required. When used in mixed beds with AMBERLITE™ HPR9000 OH Ion Exchange Resin, AMBERLITE HPR1400 H is the first cation resin to offer protection from the sulfate kinetic problem that has commonly plagued many PWR polishers operating with ETA chemistry. This resin has been demonstrated to mitigate the ETA-related surface fouling of the anion resin in mixed beds, thus stabilizing sulfate removal kinetics and notably increasing anion resin life and overall polisher performance. Based on the well-established chemistry of AMBERLITE™ HPR650 H Ion Exchange Resin, AMBERLITE HPR1400 H will deliver the same operating capacity, durability, and hydraulic performance that has been known and appreciated for years in PWR condensate polishing systems.
