ALDEX C-800 Series Resins

C-800H SC (LS) High Purity Cation Resin (Low Sodium)

Aldex C-800H SC (LS) is a strongly acidic, high purity gel-type cation resin supplied in the highly regenerated hydrogen form and contains very low levels of sodium. This resin is manufactured under special conditions in order to meet the exacting requirements for ultrapure water production. The black color of this premium cation resin makes it ideally suited to be paired with the light colored Aldex SB-1 P OH SC, a gellular strong base type 1 anion resin. The extremely low metal content of Aldex C-800H SC (LS) meets the requirements of the nuclear power industry allowing this product to be used in power generation as well as working or polishing mixed beds.

C-800H SC (LS) Features

Very Low Sodium and Metal Content

Special manufacturing conditions insure very low metal content.

Elemental analysis, dry basis
Sodium (Na)<10 ppm
Cobalt (Co)<10 ppm
Copper (Cu)<10 ppm
Aluminum (Al) <50 ppm
Iron (Fe) <50 ppm

No Organic Chlorides Leakage

No chlorinated solvents are used in the manufacturing of Aldex C-800H SC (LS) resulting in no leakage of organic chlorides.

Very Low TOC

Non solvent sulfonation and special manufacturing processes assure very low TOC leakage.

Uniform Particle Size

98% of all beads are in the minus 16 to plus 40 mesh range: giving a lower pressure drop while maintaining the superior kinetics of standard mesh size products.

Superior Physical Stability

90% plus sphericity and high crush strengths together with a very uniform particle size provide greater resistance to bead breakage while maintaining low pressure drop.
