ABOUT ZEOLITE - CLINOPTILOLITE

Zeolites are hydrated aluminosilicates characterized by high surface areas and high cation exchange capacities. There are more than 40 types of natural zeolite minerals. Clinoptilolite (from the Heulandite group) is the most common and suitable natural zeolite type for commercial and industrial applications. More than 90% of the world's zeolite production is clinoptilolite.

Zeolite deposits were formed millions of years ago, when volcanoes erupted enormous amounts of ash–aluminosilicates of alkaline and alkaline earths. Some of the wind borne ash settled to form thick ash beds. In some cases the ash fell into lakes. In another case water percolated through the ash beds. In both cases, the chemical reaction of volcanic ash and salt water resulted in the formation of natural zeolites.

The characteristic of a zeolite deposit was decided in it’s genesis. Small natural differences such as temperature, geographic location and ash/water properties result in a slightly different composition. Therefore some unique properties were given to a few of the deposits. These small differences present during the formation of a zeolite deposit is the reason that each natural zeolite property has distinctly unique properties.

The alumina and silica in the ash stack form into a stable, open and three dimensional honey-comb structure. For example, clinoptilolite has a 5/1 silica to alumina ratio.

Zeolite - clinoptilolite is an amazing crystalline mineral capable of adsorbing and absorbing many different types of gases, moisture, petrochemicals, heavy metals, low-level radioactive elements and a multitude of various solutions. The channels in the zeolite provide large surface areas on which chemical reactions can take place. The cavities and channels within the crystal can occupy up to 50% of its volume. Zeolites can adsorb or absorb large amounts of materials, such as ions or gas molecules.

Zeolite - clinoptilolite has a wide range of applications:
