Activated Alumina Balls

Activated Alumina Ball is Aluminium Oxide that is highly porous and exhibits a higher surface area. Activated Alumina Ball widely used in Instrumental Air Drying suitable for Heat Less Air Dryer, Heat Reactivated Dryer, Heat of Compression Air Dryer & Reciprocated Air Dryer. Activated Alumina Ball offers desirable performance in all brands of Air Dryer.

Activated alumina grade SORB-I (AD – 101) having a surface area in the range 345-415 m2/g. because it has the highest water absorption capacity then other adsorbents. Sorbead India supply alumina balls for thermal swing adsorption process, oil filtration, air & gas drying process. We supply alumina balls for HOC, heated and heatless air drying process, as well as alumina for fluoride and arsenic removal. Get effective moisture/water absorption results from the air for a long time with regeneration process.
