What is resin in ion exchange method?

An ion-exchange resin or ion-exchange polymer is a resin or polymer that acts as a medium for ion exchange. It is an insoluble matrix (or support structure) normally in the form of small (0.25–1.43 mm radius) microbeads, usually white or yellowish, fabricated from an organic polymer substrate.

What is resin solution?

EPON™ epoxy resin solutions are liquid to solid bisphenol A (BPA) epoxy resins diluted in a variety of organic solvents. These solutions provide low viscosities and a range of reactivities.

How much ion exchange resin do I need?

Ion exchange resins have a capacity of approximately 1 equivalent per liter of resin. Your requirement is small, you may want to consider a cartridge type system. If you do a regular column, you can buy in the market a 6″ X 48″ column. Fill it to about 30″ height.

What ions are exchanged by ion exchange resin?

Ion exchange resins consists of two main types, i.e., cation exchange resins, that exchange positively charged ions, such as sodium, for calcium, and anion exchange resins, that exchange negatively charged ions, such as chloride, for arsenic.

What is ion exchange capacity of resin?

Definitions. In general terms, the capacity of an ion exchange resin can be expressed as the quantity of ions that can be taken up by a specific volume of the resin.

How do you recharge ion exchange resin?

The strong acid cation exchanger resin is regenerated with sulphuric or hydrochloric acid, which effectively strips off the calcium, magnesium and sodium from the resin, substituting hydrogen. Hydrochloric acid is typically applied at between 4 and 6%.

Is ion exchange resin toxic?

N.A. N.A. Prolonged or repeated contact can cause slight skin irritation. Prolonged or repeated contact can cause slight skin irritation.

How flammable is resin?

Highly flammable. Vapors may form explosive mixtures with air. Some resins may have unsaturated double bonds that polymerize explosively when heated or involved in a fire.
