Ion Exchange


What is Ion Exchange?

Ion exchange (IX) is a process that takes advantage of surface reaction kinetics whereby undesirable contaminants are removed from water by binding to a resin product that releases a desirable compound in its place.

How it Works

Ion exchange resins include a wide range of customizable resins, with the most common being cation and anion exchange resins. Some of these resins are regenerable and others are single-use. Vessels can be configured in lead-lag configurations to prevent breakthrough of target contaminants. Bed life can be modeled using software for many applications. We help our clients design and build ion exchange systems in a wide range of temporary, mobile, and permanent applications.
