The MELsorb® products have been designed for use as high temperature carbon dioxide sorbents. They can also be used for sorption of other materials or as supports for base catalysed reactions.

We offer a range of pure lithium zirconates, as well as lithium zirconates doped with a range of promoters to alter the kinetics and optimum activity range.

As the product of choice will depend very much on the chosen application please contact us with your specific requirements and we will select the most appropriate product for you.

The MELsorb® water treatment systems are simple to operate and maintain. The cartridge system requires little training to operate and the systems are designed to allow easy sampling and monitoring of the water quality, while taking up minimal space.

In order to protect the environment, legislation over the quality of effluent water is becoming ever more stringent. Effluent treatment, though a necessary process, places a strain on the manufacturing industry. MEL has been manufacturing zirconium chemicals for over 75 years and has developed the MELsorb system to help industry comply with safety regulations for water containing polluting metal ions and other species.

In addition, MEL recognises that several industries, particularly the electronics and pharmaceutical sectors, require water of high purity for their processing. Trace contaminants can be difficult to remove to very low levels, but the MELsorb system has demonstrated removal of species to below detectable levels.

MEL has supplied systems to a variety of locations and specifications in order to incorporate the system in space-constrained environments. The MELsorb® system effectively removes many contaminants, commonly monitored in effluent streams, including Arsenic. To discuss your particular concerns please contact us.
