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™ IRN9882 H/OH

AMBERLITE™ IRN9882 H/OH Ion Exchange Resin is a Mixture of Nuclear-grade, Macroporous, 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 IRN9882 H/OH is a mixed bed composed of 40% cation resin (12% DVB) and 60% AMBERLITE™ IRN9766 OH Ion Exchange Resin on a volume basis. Both components are characterized by a macroporous polystyrenic structure which gives the mixed bed an exceptional physical stability. AMBERLITE IRN9882 H/OH offers high exchange kinetics and the ability to remove colloids to achieve the fastest decontamination pre-outage. AMBERLITE IRN9882 H/OH resin is specifically designed for the treatment of the storage pond effluents where the linear velocity can exceed 50 m/h. 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
  • Rad waste treatment and decontamination: removal of radioactive cations such as 137Cs and cobalt isotopes, removal of radioactive colloid, removal of silver
  • PWR steam generation blowdown (APG) when solids are present

Advantages:

  •  Nuclear-grade resins with minimum of ionic and non-ionic contamination
  •  Low residuals of all metallic species
  •  Exceptional physical stability
  •  Fastest decontamination pre-outage
  •  Faster change-out and initial rinse-up prior to service, which minimizes start-up time and rinse wastewater volume
