LEWATIT® SM 600 KR Cl-frei

Lewatit®SM 600 KR Cl-frei is a ready-to-use mixed bed resin comprising strongly acidic gel-type cation and strongly basic (type I) gel-type anion exchange resin in fully regenerated form (min. 99% H+/min. 95 %OH-).

Lewatit® SM 600 KR Cl-frei is a 1:1 stoichiometric mixture (other mix ratio available on request), premium grade and purified (extremely low content of desorbable chloride ions and no organically bound chlorine!) to meet nuclear industry specifications. Lewatit®nuclear resins (Lewatit® KR) are noted for their outstanding mechanical and chemical stability as well as their high osmotic stability. Because of their excellent hydrodynamic properties, Lewatit® KR resins allow particularly high flow rates. The narrow particle size distribution and very low fines content of max.0.1% (< 0.315 mm) result in particularly low pressure losses compared with standard resins. Used in radioactive water circuits, they provide a number of special tasks and guarantee a water quality that fully complies with the requirements of the nuclear power industry.

Properties and benefits
Lewatit® SM 600 KR Cl-frei is particularly suitable for the:

  • polishing in the primary and secondary sections as a mixed bed component
  • decontamination of circuits in nuclear reactor plants
  • treatment of primary coolant e.g. in pressure water reactors
  • purification of steam generator blowdown irrespective of the condition with Levoxin (hydrazine), ethanolamine or morpholine
  • removal of activated cleavage or corrosion products, including mechanical filtration of suspended impurities
