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™ IRN217 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 IRN217 Li/OH is composed of AMBERLITE™ IRN77 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 IRN217 Li/OH is designed to be used in primary water chemistry control in PWR nuclear power operation. 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.
