Water filtration

WATER FILTRATION

Water treatment refers to the removal of impurities (microorganisms, suspended solids or dissolved substances) from drinking water, industrial wastewater, hot tubs and the like. Granular materials such as sand have often been used to filter out impurities. However, research indicates that highly pure zeolite is superior to conventional granular media in terms of natural filtration and absorbent abilities in aqueous environments.

Currently, several technologies that control water pollution are available: coagulation, foam flotation, filtration, ion exchange, aerobic and anaerobic treatment, solvent extraction, electrolysis, microbial reduction, and activated sludge . Most of these methods, however, involve substantial financial costs which can prevent their application to pollution control.

Among all available water treatment technologies, adsorption is considered the best option because of convenience, ease of operation, and simplicity of design. Zeolite is a mineral that has been noted by scientists because of its unique adsorption properties; it adsorbs a variety of heavy metals and ammonia, which allows it to remove a wide range of pollutants.

Lab data indicates that zeolite outperforms conventional filtration media, including sand and anthracite, in its filtration and absorption capabilities. This is attributed to zeolite’s surface area, which is seven or eight times larger than many other granular materials. For instance, an ounce of pool sand has a surface area of 1,000 feet per cubic foot, whereas the same amount of zeolite has a surface area of 9,700,000 feet per cubic foot.

 

THE MAJOR BENEFITS OF ZEOLITE IN WATER FILTRATION PROCESS

 Ammonia (NH3) and heavy metal cations are often found in water sources and pose serious health and environmental risks. Studies have determined that natural zeolite is selective for these cations, meaning that it will absorb and bind them in its honeycomb structure even in the presence of larger amounts of competing cations. In addition, zeolite forms strong bonds with ammonia and heavy metals that are difficult to break. This prevents leaching of contaminants into the environment. 

 

Other benefits include the following:

  • High internal and external surface area which results in a high ion holding capacity
  • Selective for heavy metal cations including zinc (Zn), copper (Cu), silver (Ag), lead (Pb), cobalt (Co) and nickel (Ni)
  • Outperforms conventional granular media
  • Highly effective at filtering and purifying water
  • Cost effective
  • Removes organic matter
  • Abrasion resistant
  • Dehydrates sludge
  • Requires 50% less backwash cycles than sand
  • Reduces the amount of backwash water due to a decreased number of backwash cycles

ZEOPONIC

wwedd

Natural zeolites have unique physical and chemical properties, which make them attractive for use in slow-release fertilisation for plants, zeoponic plant growth substrates,and soil conditioning and remediation.

Zeoponic substrates are defined as artificial soils in which zeolites are a major component.

Zeoponic Materials

 

 While zeolites have several properties that make them highly useful minerals, they can be chemically modified to make them even more effective. In fact, one of the most successful uses of zeolites have been in "zeoponic" systems that utilize modified natural zeolite rather than strictly raw natural zeolite. The best example of this is zeolite used for plant growth applications.  By changing the composition of the ion exchange sites and by "loading" the sites with selected nutrient cations, zeolites can become an excellent plant growth medium.  Other enhancements can also be done to modify the properties.  Combined with slowly dissolving materials (such as synthetic and/or natural nutrient anions), these nutrient-enhanced zeoponic materials supply plant roots with additional vital nutrient cations and anions.  Most importantly, these nutrients are provided in a slow-release, plant root demand-driven fashion.  How does it work?  Basically, the process is a combination of dissolution and ion exchange reactions.  The absorption of nutrients from the soil solution by plant roots drives the dissolution and ion exchange reactions, pulling away nutrients as needed. The zeolite is then "recharged" by the addition of more dissolved nutrients.  In effect, zeoponic systems increase nutrient retention, reduce environmental nutrient losses and reduce fertilizer requirements by establishing a replenishable and balanced nutrient supply in the plant root zone.

Zeolites are microporous crystalline solids with well-defined structures. Generally they contain silicon, aluminium and oxygen in their framework and cations, water and/or other molecules wthin their pores. Many occur naturally as minerals, and are extensively mined in many parts of the world. Others are synthetic, and are made commercially for specific uses, or produced by research scientists trying to understand more about their chemistry.

Because of their unique porous properties, zeolites are used in a variety of applications with a global market of several million tonnes per annum. In the western world, major uses are in petrochemical cracking, ion-exchange (water softening and purification), and in the separation and removal of gases and solvents. Other applications are in agriculture, animal husbandry and construction. They are often also referred to as molecular sieves.

Structural formula

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A defining feature of zeolites is that their frameworks are made up of 4-connected networks of atoms. One way of thinking about this is in terms of tetrahedra, with a silicon atom in the middle and oxygen atoms at the corners. These tetrahedra can then link together by their corners (see illustration) to from a rich variety of beautiful structures. The framework structure may contain linked cages, cavities or channels, which are of the right size to allow small molecules to enter - i.e. the limiting pore sizes are roughly between 3 and 10 Å in diameter.

In all, over 130 different framework structures are now known. In addition to having silicon or aluminium as the tetrahedral atom, other compositions have also been synthesised, including the growing category of microporous aluminophosphates, known as ALPOs.

Catalysis

 

 

Zeolites have the ability to act as catalysts for chemical reactions which take place within the internal cavities. 
An import
ant class of reactions is that catalysed by hydrogen-exchanged zeolites, whose framework-bound protons give rise to very high acidity. This is exploited in many organic reactions, including crude oil cracking, isomerisation and fuel synthesis. Zeolites canalso serve as oxidation or reduction catalysts, often after metals have been introduced into the framework. Examplesare the use of titanium ZSM-5 in the production of caprolactam, and copper zeolites in NOx decomposition.

Underpinning all these types of reaction is the unique microporous nature of zeolites, where the shape and size of a particular pore system exerts a steric influence on the reaction, controlling the access of reactants and products. Thus zeolites are often said to act as shape-selective catalysts. Increasingly, attention has focused on fine-tuning the properties of zeolite catalysts in order to carry out very specific syntheses of high-value chemicals e.g. pharmaceuticals and cosmetics.

Adsorption and Separation

 

 

 

 

     

 

 

The shape-selective properties of zeolites are also the basis for their use in   molecular adsorption. The ability preferentially to adsorb certain molecules, while excluding others, has opened up a wide range of molecular sieving applications. Sometimes it is simply a matter of the size and shape of pores controlling access into the zeolite. In other cases different types of molecule enter the zeolite, but some diffuse through the channels more quickly, leaving others stuck behind, as in the purification of para-xylene. As shown in the picture on the left, the shape of para-xylene means that it can diffuse freely in the channels of silicalite while the other isomers get stuck.

Cation-containing zeolites are extensively used as desiccants due to their high affinity for water, and also find application in gas separation, where molecules are differentiated on the basis of their electrostatic interactions with the metal ions. Conversely, hydrophobic silica zeolites preferentially absorb organic solvents. Zeolites can thus separate molecules based on differences of size, shape and polarity.

Zeolites and the Environment

 

 

 

 

Zeolites contribute to a cleaner, safer environment in a great number of ways. In fact nearly every application of zeolites has been driven by environmental concerns, or plays a significant role in reducing toxic waste and energy consumption.In powder detergents, zeolites replaced harmful phosphate builders, now banned in many parts of the world because of water pollution risks. Catalysts, by definition, make a chemical process more efficient, thus saving energy and indirectly reducing pollution. Moreover, processes can be carried out in fewer steps, miminising unecessary waste and by-products. As solid acids, zeolites reduce the need for corrosive liquid acids, and as redox catalysts and sorbents, they can remove atmospheric pollutants, such as engine exahust gases and ozone-depleting CFCs. Zeolites can also be used to separate harmful organics from water, and in removing heavy metal ions, including those produced by nuclear fission, from water.
