AMBERLITE™ Ion Exchange Resins

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™ IRN150 H/OH

AMBERLITE™ IRN150 H/OH Ion Exchange Resin is a Mixture of Nuclear-grade, Uniform Particle Size, Gel, Strong Acid Cation and Strong Base Anion Exchange Resins for Water Treatment Applications in the Nuclear Power Industry. It is designed specifically for use in nuclear loops where highest resin purity and stability are required, and where the "as supplied" resin must have a minimum of ionic and non-ionic contamination. These high standards of resin purity enable plants to achieve reliable and safe production whilst reducing the need for equipment maintenance and minimizing the impact of unscheduled outages. AMBERLITE IRN150 H/OH is a stoichiometric equivalent mixture of AMBERLITE™ IRN77 H Ion Exchange Resin and AMBERLITE™ IRN78 OH Ion Exchange Resin on a 1:1 equivalent basis. The resin combines the properties of high capacity and excellent physical strength. Pre-mixed resin also allows for faster change-out and initial rinse-up prior to service, which minimizes start-up time and rinse wastewater volume.

Used In:

  • Primary water treatment: treatment of primary coolant blowdown, pre-outage cleanup
  • Fuel pool purification in CANDU reactors
  • Rad waste treatment and decontamination: removal of radioactive cations such as 137Cs and cobalt isotopes, removal of anionic radioactive materials
  • PWR steam generation blowdown (APG)
  • BWR reactor water cleanup

Advantages:

  •  Nuclear-grade resins with minimum of ionic and non-ionic contamination
  •  Low residuals of all metallic species
  •  High capacity and excellent physical strength
  •  Faster change-out and initial rinse-up prior to service, which minimizes start-up time and rinse wastewater volume
