Activated Alumina is an aluminum oxide which is highly porous and exhibits tremendous surface area. Activated Alumina is resistant to thermal shock and abrasion and will not shrink, swell, soften nor disintegrate when immersed in water.
Drying - Nearly all gases and liquids can be dried with AA316 (equivalent to the grade F-200 on the US market). Due to the high surface area (300 sq. meters/gram), AA316 is an effective adsorbent in such gases as Acetylene, Oxygen, Methane and Oxygen along with fluids such as Benzene, Freon, Hydraulic Oils, Kerosene, transformer and vegetable oils.
Acid Removal - Transformer oils, lubricating oils and refrigerants all form degradation acids upon use. AA316 Activated Alumina will remove these corrosive acids thus protecting valuable equipment..
