AmberSep IRC748 UPS Chelating Resin is a uniform particle size resin of macroporous structure. Its polystyrenic matrix, crosslinked with divinylbenzene, contains iminodiacetic groups. The chemical nature of these groups is such that they form complexes with metal ions. The narrow particle size distribution affords an exceptional pressure drop profile. It is highly resistant to osmotic shock and has excellent physical stability.
AmberSep IRC748 UPS features very high operating capacity for calcium and is especially useful when treating brines that have a high strontium content. Under these conditions, the resin offers an improved cycle time, displaying also very good removal efficiency for strontium with very low metal leakage.
AmberSep IRC748 UPS is also used for metal recovery in hydrometallurgical applications because it also exhibits high selectivity for heavy metal cations over alkali metal ions found in various process and waste streams.
