The excellent thermal properties of high alumina balls makes it suitable for applications in olefins processes such as ethylene dryers where polymerization could be a problem. It's high alumina content, low silica and high strength make this product ideal for high temperature and steam applications, such as secondary reformers in ammonia processing where leached silica can coat downstream equipment or foul the catalyst bed.
The high alumina balls are extremely hard, inert, synthetic aluminosilicates. The high alumina balls consist out the mineral Mullit, a natural silica structure based on SiO2 and a high AI2O3 content of >99.
1/8", 1/4", 3/4", 1/2" and 1".
Ceramic balls are used for improving the gas/liquid flow distribution in adsorber beds of dynamic adsorption processes.
High alumina balls are available in the following packaging, drums and big bags.
Handling & storage recommendations
During handling precautions should be taken against electrostatic discharges. Storage in a dry warehouse is recommended. Open packages should be resealed to prevent contamination and adsorption of water or other gases and vapors.
