Info ULI BREITER WASSERKORN
ULI BREITER WASSERKORN is a cross-linked polymer, which only absorbs water- based or aqueous solutions. It is comprised solely of sodium polyacrylate. Particle size varies from V4 inch to 45 microns in diameter.
ULI BREITER WASSERKORN has a physical appearance of a white Classified as a super-absorbent, ULI BREITER WASSERKORN takes an aqueous solution from a liquid state to a semi-solid state that is a gel, not a completely solid waste mass.
The wide ranges of uses for ULI BREITER WASSERKORN are in the agricultural, industrial and petrochemical areas. Applications for agriculture exist in lawn care, transplanting, water retention aid, seeding, hydro mulching, bare root shipping, gardening and soil conditioning. Industrial uses for ULI BREITER WASSERKORN include water removal, water retention, fuel filters, thickening agents, water stop material, sludge dewatering aid, cold/hot pack media and battery acids. Within the petrochemical industry, the solidification of spills is its primary use.
ULI BREITER WASSERKORN can absorb large quantities of water or aqueous solutions while retaining the liquid under pressure. The cross-linked polymers in ULI BREITER WASSERKORN are insoluble in aqueous solutions and typically organic solvents. The hydrophobic nature of the product does not allow it to solublize in an aqueous medium. The gellation occurs from multiple hydrations of the lattice structure of the molecule; in layman's terms the water becomes part of the ULI BREITER WASSERKORN molecule rather than the molecule becoming part of the water.
Uli Breiter Wasserkorn is superior to many alternative methods because ULI BREITER WASSERKORN does not significantly increase the volume of the spill and waste for disposal. It expands in volume by less than 1 %. Disposal costs are subsequently less. Another characteristic of ULI BREITER WASSERKORN is its capacity. As ULI BREITER WASSERKORN is solvated, chains unfold and ionic repulsive forces expand its molecules, creating large absorption capacities. Typically absorption capacity will range from 400 times on a weight to weight basis. Absorption speed depends on the nature of the aqueous solution being absorbed; it can take anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes for gellation to occur. Speed of absorption is a function of surface area and the degree and type of cross-linking. These factors also affect ULI BREITER WASSERKORN I gel strength. After using ULI BREITER WASSERKORN, the absorbed fluid will slowly evaporate until it reaches a relatively dry state, depending on the humidity present. This dry material will again absorb water to the original level. The cycling phenomena will continue for several cycles; however, the absorbent capability of ULI BREITER WASSERKORN diminishes with each use.
Disposing of ULI BREITER WASSERKORN is very simply explained. The liquid Uli Breiter Wasserkorn absorbs is the determining factor in disposal. If the liquid is hazardous, as a good rule of thumb the gellation of the liquid and ULI BREITER WASSERKORN is also hazardous in nature. Remember ULI BREITER WASSERKORN simply takes the liquid into a gel state, so it changes the physical make up and not the chemical make up. Depending on the absorbed product, ULI BREITER WASSERKORN maybe suitable for landfill purposes. If a hazardous waste is absorbed it must be disposed of in an appropriate hazardous waste landfill. Review of Federal, State and Local waste disposal regulations is essential to determine the appropriate disposal alternative.
