Silica Gel is a highly activated adsorbent, furnished in a wide range of mesh sizes to suit various industrial applications. It is non-corrosive, ordoriess, tasteless, non-toxic, and chemi cally inert. It is a highly porous form of silica, with an extremely large internal surface area. The silica gel does not undergo any chemical reaction during adsorption and does not form any by products. It is non-deliquescent and will not change its size or shape. Even when the silica gel is water saturated, it remains dry and free-flowing.
Silica Gel has a very strong affinity for water and will adsorb it in preference to most other substances. It is also a good adsorbent for HC1, gasoline-range hydrocarbons, CO2, C12, sulphur and nitrogen compounds, aromatics, and many others. Silica Gel is in wide use in many industries for a myriad number of applications where a high capacity desiccant or selective adsorbent is required.
The above products are free from foreign impurities such as Chlorides, Sulphates and organic matter and have high absorption efficiency.
