Natural Zeolites are usually used in industry for water purification, as catalysts, and in nuclear reprocessing. So far Zeolites is the good natural filter for the filtration of water which is offers good performance to sand and carbon filters, giving purer water and higher result rates with minimum maintenance required.
Natural Zeolites has highly porous structure less than 4 micron in size which is naturally has capacity to adsorb cations such as heavy metals and ammonium. Natural Zeolites also absorb some organic contaminants and undesirable odours.
By attracting and increasing bacterial action per unit volume, natural zeolites also act as seed to boost bacterial flocs.
Natural Zeolites are the best ion exchange which is can be remove and recovery heavy metal cations such as Pb, Cu, Mn, Fe, Zn, Co, Cr.
