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™ HPR9000 OH Ion Exchange Resin is a Uniform Particle Size, Macroporous, Strong Base Anion Exchange Resin for Condensate Polishing and Mixed Bed Demineralization Applications for the Power Industry. It is a premium-quality resin designed specifically for use in nuclear condensate polishing mixed beds and other regenerable mixed beds when highest resin purity and water quality are required. The special dimensioning and consistency of the macroporous structure of AMBERLITE HPR9000 OH provides exceptional resistance to surface fouling as well as physical, osmotic, and oxidative stresses, which allows increased resin lifetime in operation. AMBERLITE HPR9000 OH can operate reliably under the high flowrate and pressure drop conditions that are typically used in condensate polishers, and the particle size, uniformity, and white cream color resin allow for excellent, easy, and visible backwash separation when used in mixed beds. AMBERLITE HPR9000 OH can be perfectly paired with several cation exchange resins and the selection depends on plant operation: • When highest water quality and longest runtime are needed, AMBERLITE™ HPR1600 H Ion Exchange Resin is the best choice due to its exceptional chemical stability and high capacity. • For a cation resin that balances capacity and regenerability, AMBERLITE™ HPR650 H Ion Exchange Resin is a trusted choice. • For systems running with ETA chemistry, AMBERLITE™ HPR1400 H Ion Exchange Resin should be the choice to maximize the protection of the anion resin kinetics. • For longest runtime in amine cycle operation or in the most oxidative environments, AMBERLITE™ HPR2000 H Ion Exchange Resin is the best choice due to its high sodium selectivity and excellent oxidative stability..
