What are the differences between inert ceramic balls and activated alumina balls

Inert alumina ball is abbreviated as inert porcelain ball. It is processed from high-quality chemical porcelain clay materials and has the characteristics of high strength, high chemical stability and thermal stability. So what are the differences between inert ceramic balls and activated alumina balls? Let’s briefly understand:

Inert ceramic balls can withstand high temperature, high pressure, acid, alkali, salt and various organic solvents, and are widely used in petroleum, chemical, fertilizer, natural gas and environmental protection industries. Inert alumina is used as the support and covering material of the reactor catalyst, which can buffer the impact of the liquid and gas entering the reactor on the catalyst, protect the catalyst, and improve the distribution of liquid and gas in the reactor. Its main function is to increase the gas or liquid distribution points, support and protect the active catalyst with low strength.

Activated alumina balls have the characteristics of high strength, low abrasion, water penetration, no softening, no expansion, no powdering, no cracking, etc., with many capillary channels and large surface area, which can be used as adsorbents, desiccants and catalysts. It can be widely used in petroleum cracking gas, deep drying of propylene gas and hydrogen production, drying of air devices, instrument air dryers, and fluoride treatment in hydrogen peroxide. It can also remove hydrogen sulfide, sulfur dioxide, hydrogen fluoride, hydrocarbons, etc. in the exhaust gas. Pollutants, especially suitable for the defluorination treatment of fluorine-containing water. Activated alumina balls have good adsorption and defluorination effect and are easy to stabilize. Activated alumina absorbs 6400 grams of fluorine per cubic meter. At the same time, the activated alumina ball has a strong affinity for water, oxides, acetic acid, alkali, etc. It is a kind of deep desiccant for micro water, and also an adsorbent for adsorbing polar molecules.

Simply put, the inert alumina ball is inert, will not react with the material, and play a protective role. Activated alumina balls are active and will react with the material.

Size selection and function of inert ceramic ball

The size of the inert ceramic ball should be selected according to the size of the catalyst. Generally, it follows the 2X rule (or gradation), that is, the diameter of the ceramic ball should be twice the diameter of its adjacent catalyst so that the distribution of materials is the most uniform and the pressure
