Compalox® Activated Alumina

The Ideal Solution for Chemical Processes and Environmental Protection

Activated aluminas are produced from feedstocks by controlled thermal treatment in order to eliminate most of the water in the crystal lattice. The resulting crystal phase is Compalox® activated alumina, gamma alumina with a boehmite crystal structure.

Specific features of Compalox:

  • Large Specific Surface Area
  • High Pore Volume
  • Defined Pore Size Distribution
  • Specific Catalytic Reactivity
  • Specific Adsorptive Capacity
  • High Crushing Strength and therefore, Low Dust Formation

Compalox® applications:
In order to solve specific adsorption or catalytic problems, Compalox can be modified as a tailor-made product by variation of the activation process or by using dopants meeting the customer's requirements.

Typical applications of Compalox include:

  • Desiccant (Drying of Organic and Inorganic Gases and Liquids)
  • Catalyst in Hydrogen Peroxide Production
  • Purification of Process Gases and Liquids
  • Enrichment and Recovery of Defined Substances from Diluted Systems
  • HCI and Residue Monomer Adsorption in Reaction Streams based upon Gases or Liquids
  • Air Purification
  • Water Purification by the Adsorption of Arsenic, Fluoride, Phosphate and Heavy Metals
  • Chromatography
