Shanghai – August 31, 2020 – From August 31 to September 2, specialty chemicals company LANXESS presents its water and liquid purification products and solutions at the 13th Aquatech China. The company displays high-quality water purification solutions spanning industrial, urban and civil uses. With over 80 years of experience in water treatment, the LANXESS Liquid Purification Technologies (LPT) business unit is a leader in the development and production of ion-exchange resins and iron oxide adsorbents.

High-quality industrial water treatment solutions

Different industries have different needs for water, and the discharge, treatment or reuse of the waste water will also bring a variety of challenges.

Whether it is water softening, partial or complete desalination, the waste water cleaning, or the recovery of reusable materials from waste water, Lewatit ion-exchange resins can make a difference. For example, it can selectively remove fluoride, cyanide and other environmentally harmful anions, as well as heavy metals such as nickel, chromium, cobalt, iron, and manganese. This method is widely used in pickling and acid baths.

The recovery of precious metals such as silver, gold, platinum, and palladium is economically attractive. What the factory operators want is reliable and cost-effective operation and high-quality ion-exchange resins with selectivity and regeneration capacity can just meet their requirements.

Building a water-saving city

As the increasing urban population discharges more and more sewage, improving urban sewage treatment capacity has become the focus of the water treatment industry and enterprises. On April 15, 2019, the National Development and Reform Commission and the Ministry of Water Resources issued the National Water Conservation Action Plan, proposing building water-saving cities with a focus on the construction and renovation of sewage recycling facilities.

LANXESS ion-exchange resins have made important contributions to municipal waste water treatment by virtue of their unique ability to selectively bind ions. Special Lewatit-grade products can remove from drinking water harmful components such as iron and manganese as well as trace pollutants like arsenic, lead and pesticides. By bonding pollutants including chromate, mercury, surfactants and chlorinated hydrocarbons to ion-exchange resins, LANXESS products can treat groundwater efficiently. Ionic and non-ionic pollutants that may damage biological water treatment or harm the environment can be eliminated from waste water.

Making pure, healthy drinking water

With Lewatit ion-exchange resins, LANXESS offers a series of products suitable for softening and dealkalizing drinking water in PoU systems (filter element applications). Lewatit products have excellent German quality, comply with a number of global regulations.

Lewatit products used in drinking water purification are mainly weak acid cation resins (WAC). It can remove not only calcium (carbonate hardness) in water, but also heavy metal ions (such as Cu2+, Co2+, Pb2+). It is worth mentioning that the special ion-exchange resin preloaded with magnesium and/or potassium ions can remineralize drinking water with minerals that are vital to human life and health. Therefore, LANXESS products can add beneficial minerals while removing harmful pollutants, contributing to drinking water safety and consumer health.

LANXESS Bayoxide E 33 is also a premium drinking water treatment product. The World Health Organization (WHO) sets the upper limit of arsenic concentration at 10 micrograms per liter. Bayoxide E 33 is a key product in the Bayoxide E series dedicated to removing arsenic from water. Used in a continuous fixed bed process, Bayoxide E 33 granules can quickly and accurately adsorb arsenic ions in one or more containers. The arsenic ion adsorption rate of this product is much higher than that of traditional adsorbents, which can effectively extend the service life of filter equipment.

Aquatech China 2020 gathers exhibitors from all fields and product categories in the water treatment industry, providing a complete set of environmental protection technologies and service solutions for the entire water industrial chain. The show is expected to cover an area of 220,000 square meters, with more than 3,600 exhibitors participating.
