Activated alumina is a CRC media manufactured from aluminum hydroxide by dehydroxylation in a way that produces a highly porous material. The compound is used as a desiccant and as a filter aid. Assists in the removal of fats, chlorophyll, and waxes and improve the colour of your product.
Purifies via separation of compounds by relative polarity and charge.
- Adsorption Selectivity: 6/10
[ability to target specific compounds]
- Adsorption Rate: 9/10
[speed of compound separation/removal]
- Fluid Flow Rate: 6/10
[speed of solution through media]
- Binding Affinity: 5/10
[strength of adhesion to compounds]
- Alumicel A has a 50–150 μm particle size and an acidic pH of 4.0-5.0.
- Highly porous
- Ideal for polishing filter beds, decolorizations, and as adsorbents for strong polar impurities, including sequestering H+ & OH- ions
- Can improve flow rates through other clays being used in your CRC column
