NUCLEAR GRADE RESINS

Gravex® is a complete product line of high-purity, quality-certified cation, anion and mixed bed ion exchange resins.

These custom-blended bead resins are the cleanest bead available, washed and classified, every batch tested and samples filed for future reference.

They are processed to meet nuclear specifications. We offer the most conclusive results available for nuclide removal products. Graver Technologies also supplies bead resin manufactured by Dow, Rohm & Haas and Lanxess (Bayer).

These Gravex Nuclear Grade Ion exchange resins are very high capacity polystyrene, gel type resins. They have been regenerated and processed to provide the highest possible performance in nuclear applications. The Gravex cation is specially processed to minimize leachable sulfonic acids.

Its high capacity and oxidative stability help achieve optimal performance. Gravex mixed beds are the most uniformly blended products available and have the same consistent cation to anion ratio in every package. Our unique blending process creates the less separable GR-3-16 NG stoichiometric mixed bed. A 7Li+ form cation is available as GR-7-16 NG and in the GR-4-7 NG mixed bed.

Proven Technology for the Most Challenging Separations

FILTER ELEMENT TURBOGUARD

Graver Technologies, LLC introduces TurboGuard, its technically improved 6 inch (152 mm) high-flow filter for the utility market. Graver is the world’s largest supplier of condensate system filters and components and has been manufacturing precoat and non-precoat septa for condensate systems for more than 50 years. Graver is the consistent technology innovator with more than 40 patents and numerous technical advances for condensate and high purity water applications.

Graver’s family of TurboGuard High Flow Filters will provide superior CRUD removal upstream of deep bed demineralizers. TurboGuard High Flow Filters may also be used following ion exchange beds as a resin trap,
or as highly efficient pre-filters before membrane systems. Graver’s TurboGuard line of filters are manufactured in the USA at Graver Technologies manufacturing plants, under an ISO-9001 (2000) quality system.

Graver’s TurboGuard High Flow Filter integrates a number of improvements over currently available elements. With the most experience of any supplier in condensate applications, Graver can access more than 50 years of experience when improving fundamental filtration in condensate and high purity water applications.

AEGIS® TurboGuard® Pre-Filters

  • Flow is from the inside core to the outer pleats
  • TurboGuard Filters are wrapped in a one-piece extruded outer cage preventing media migration during inside out flow
  • TurboGuard’s one-piece extruded outer cage allows for easier maintenance and removal after use
  • One-piece molded end caps, including molded-in bail for secure handling during installation and removal
  • Quad Seal gasket system to provide maximum sealing surfaces
  • Highest dirt holding capacity – approximately 25 lbs (11.5 Kg) before removal is required
  • Low pressure drop – less than 0.2 bar in service at specified flow rate
  • Optimized media surface area allows full use of installed media area – not blocked off by media “squeezing

Typical Applications

  • Pre-filter for protection of Deep Bed demineralizers
  • Pre-filter for protection of RO membranes
  • Retrofit OEM high flow large geometry filter housings

Power Generation Systems — The Right Septa Choice

Powdex® Powdered Resins

Powdex® PAO Series

  • Powdered strongly basic hydroxide form anion exchange resin
  • Highest possible conversion to hydroxide form with very high purity

NANODEX

NANODEX FILTER PAPERS TRACK SYSTEM AND PLANT PERFORMANCE by Monitoring Radionuclide and Corrosion Products

Graver’s patented Nanodex Ion Exchange Filter Papers enable diverse quantitative analyses in the power industry, especially nuclear, to monitor corrosion products, measure activity levels and satisfy fuel warranty requirements.

Nanodex AX 100 anion exchange filter disks contain strongly basic, quaternary ammonium functional sites in the chloride form, which can be converted to the desired ionic form (i.e. hydroxide) as required.

Nanodex CX 200 cation exchange filter disks contain strongly acidic, sulfonic acid functional sites in the hydrogen form. Contact your Graver representative for more information about these innovative filter papers.

FEATURES

  • High performance, specialty hydrophilic paper for a variety of analytical requirements
  • Uniform resin distribution throughout each disk
  • Standard 47mm diameter
  • Highly functionalised, highest ion exchange capacity analytical filter
    disks available
    Filter disks are easily digested by standard analytical methods

BENEFITS

  • Excellent hydraulic characteristics
  • Consistent ion exchange capacity and utilization
  • Fit standard bench-top and inline filter holders and housings
  • Single disk used per test
  • Simple to quantify ions removed – X-ray fluorescence or Atomic Absorption
