Activated Alumina is a form of Aluminium oxide. It exhibits a number of characteristics which makes it ideal for many industrial process settings. Activated Alumina features high crush strength, resistance to thermal shock, resistance to chemical attack and many more. The absorbent capability, courtesy of its high porosity and surface area pushes activated alumina to forefront. Desired characteristic of activate alumina can be achieved by careful controlled process.
Applications of activated alumina
Activated Alumina exhibits high surface area and porosity, this allows it to capture various materials, which leads it to be used as an absorbent, desiccant and many more. Here are few ways in which activated alumina products are used:
Activated Alumina is a highly effective adsorbent in both gas and liquid applications which is used by number of industries for targeted removal of components from other medium. Activated alumina is well known to be used in water filtration applications as it is effective in removing fluoride from water and also other contaminations like arsenic, lead and sulphur. It is also an cost-effective adsorbent.
Activated Alumina adsorbs water from air allowing it to be used as a desiccant. It can trap water in order to maintain dryness more like silica gel. This is more like desiccant can absorb up to 20% of its own weight in water. Activated alumina can be reused by thermal treatment where the activated alumina let go off all the water absorbed.
Activated Alumina is widely used as a catalyst as well as inert carrier or as a substitute for other catalyst. Activated alumina is most well known for its role as a Claus catalyst and is widely used in Sulphur recovery process in oil and gas refineries.
Activated alumina is used in many industrial process settings and is highly customizable and is often agglomerates to improve performance and handling characteristics.
