Sorbster Media - Silica removal from wastewater

Sorbster® Si-1 alumina-based media removes soluble or reactive silica from industrial water. It is manufactured to specific physical characteristics to enhance silica removal. Reactive silica bonds rapidly throughout the high media macro-porosity and surface area for removal rates up to 99%. Sorbster® Si-1 has a 20-30 weight % capacity for silica adsorption. Reduction of other anions in water may also be achieved by Sorbster® Si-1.

Silica is a problem for high-pressure boilers and cooling tower operation, limiting cycles of concentration. Silica will precipitate as a glassy deposit which reduces efficiency.

Two types of silica, colloidal and reactive, can cause this problem as colloidal silica will break down and volatilize under high temperature and pressure.

Sorbster® Si is specifically designed to remove reactive silica from makeup water to prevent potential deposition, improve the efficiency of cooling operations, and enhance chemical program efficiencies.

Features and Benefits

• Suitable for all water qualities and applications – process waters, cooling water, boiler water, groundwater, wastewater

• Useful treatment to increase cooling tower cycles of concentration limited by silica. This benefits in reduced chemical and makeup water costs
Effective pretreatment for increased selenium removal when combined with Sorbster® MM-1 media.

• Utilize to remove competing anions ahead of other treatments.

• Cost effective, easy pump and treat applications in standard industry tanks and cartridges.
