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™ IRN317 Li/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 IRN317 Li/OH is composed of AMBERLITE™ IRN99 H Ion Exchange Resin converted to the 7Li form at ≥ 99.9% isotopic purity and AMBERLITE™ IRN78 OH Ion Exchange Resin, supplied together on a 1:1 equivalent basis. AMBERLITE IRN317 Li/OH is the premier resin designed to be used in primary water chemistry control in PWR nuclear power operation and offers the highest operating capacity and excellent resistance to bead fracture from attrition. 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.
