Regular size of cation resin is 0.315mm to 1.25mm.But UPS cation ion exchange resin size is 0.6mm+/-0.05mm.Compared to reguar size resin,UPS resin has more working efficiency.But the cost of UPS resin is also much higher than general size.The model number is TC008U.You could see the specification as below.
It is a UPS size of premium grade gel type strong acid cation exchange resin produced by sulfonation of styrene-divinylbenzene (DVB) copolymers in standard Gaussian size distribution. It has excellent chemical, physical and thermal stability, and high exchange capacity.TC008U in sodium form is widely used for water softening to reduce total hardness. In hydrogen form, it also can be used for water demineralization.
Application: Water softening, demineralization
Polymer matrix structure: Gel polystyrene crosslinked with divinylbenzene (DVB)
Appearance: Amber, spherical beads
Functional Group: Sulphonic acid
Ionic form as shipped: Na+ or H+
