LANXESS participated at the Aquatech India tradeshow from 02nd – 04th March, 2011 to showcase the applications of their premium product, namely Lewatit® ion exchange resins. At this exhibition, LANXESS showcased products for industrial and potable water treatment.
The main products for industrial water treatment are Lewatit® MonoPlus S 108 and Lewatit® S 1667. Lewatit® MonoPlus S 108 is a new strongly acidic, gel-type cation exchange resin with beads of uniform size (monodisperse). Lewatit® S 1667 is a monodisperse, strong acidic cation exchanger, which was newly developed for industrial water softening.
The optimized functionality of Lewatit® MonoPlus S 108 and Lewatit® S 1667 provides a longer cycle in the demineralization processes and between regenerations respectively. Their improved total capacity results in high operating capacities with a very low ionic leakage and very low regenerant chemical consumption.
The potable water treatment products include Lewatit® FO 36 for arsenic removal and Lewatit® MonoPlus SR 7 for nitrate removal. Lewatit® FO 36 is designed to reduce the arsenic contamination in potable water supplies, and meet stringent requirements of regional legislation at the same time. Lewatit® MonoPlus SR 7 can reduce the nitrate content to levels safely below 50 mg/L thereby reducing the consumption of nitrate in potable water to a considerable level. Depending on the depth of regeneration removal rates of up to 90% are possible.
To meet the global demand for ion exchangers and other products that are key elements in water treatment, LANXESS has set up a new state-of-the-art production facility at Jhagadia in the state of Gujarat, which is operational since December 2010.
With more than 70 years of experience in the production and application of ion exchange resins, LANXESS is today one of the top three global players in the area of manufacturing ion exchange resins for water treatment and purification. At present, the company manufactures over 250 products from the Lewatit® product range.
