|Zeolite Applications - Environmental Products
|Zeotech sells natural
and chemically modified zeolites to treat specific
environmental challenges in waste water streams,
solid wasets and gas streams.
|Turbidex ™ and Turbidex HP™ filtration media removes suspended solids down to
3-5 micron size and can take ammonium and heavy
metal ions out of water streams. Turbidex
™ and Turbidex HP™ are used in a variety of
water filtration applications from turbidity reduction
in municiple drinking water to suspended solids
reduction in municiple waste water to removal of
solids and contaminants in industial waste water.
Pressure drop, depth of bed filtration and contaminant
holding capacity are superior to sand and most other
types of media. In most applications Turbidex
™ and Turbidex HP™ can be regenerated by simple
backwash or with saline regeneration.

|ZEOLOC® SM is an organo-zeolite granular filtration media used
to remove trace organic contaminants such as BETX,
TCE and other dissolved, toxic, organic compounds
from water streams.
|Example: A Fortune 500 company's
chemical plant treats effluent process water through Turbidex ™ filtration media to remove TSS and then through
a bed of ZEOLOC®
SM to remove trace amounts of dissolved
solvents prior to discharge to a municipal treatment
system. Every month or two when the ZEOLOC®
SM becomes saturated with organic
solvents, the product is taken out an disposed of
at a common landfill since it passes EPA's TCLP
|SOLID WASTE AND SLUDGE TREATMENT
|ZEOLOC® is a powder product used for encapsulation of hazardous
and toxic sold wastes. It can reduce costs of treatment
and disposal of heavy metal waste, toxic sludge
and paint residue by allowing waste to pass TCLP
and be disposed in a common landfill rather than
in a costly, hazardous disposal site.
|Example: A lead battery manufacturer
was hauling lead slag and old battery casings to
a hazardous waste dump because they contaminated
over 1,000 ppm Pb and significant amounts of Cadmium.
After encapsulation treatment with ZEOLOC® and Portland cement, the waste passed
TCLP and was classified as "non-hazardous".
It was permitted to be buried on the manufacturer's
plant site saving about $700,000 per year.
|Zeoloc® 10 is an organo-zeolite powder for encapsulation of
oily sludge and organic wastes.. Ther special formula
with high-surface area and oleophilic sorption characteristics
is used similarly to regular Zeoloc® as described above, but Zeoloc®
10 can absorb and encapsulate oily
sludge and organic wastes.
|Example: A large, international oil company used Zeoloc® 10 to mix with cutting-oil and formation-oil contaminated
drill-cuttings in jungle locations to avoid hydrocarbon
contamination into local soil and streams. The encapsulation
worked so well that the company used the stabilized
product to build location roads, again without any
leaching of hydrocarbons into the environment.
|ZEOLOC® 10 WILL ENCAPSULATE THE FOLLOWING WASTES:
- Oily Sludge
- Tank Bottoms
- Organic Contaminated Soils
- Toxic Oxyanions of Chrome, Arsenic, and Selenium
- Non-Volatile and Semi-Volitile Organic Compounds
- Heavy-Metal Contaminated Soil
- Smelter Slag - Mine Tailings and Waste
- Battery Casings and Waste
- Metal Contaminated Blast Sand
- Metal Catalyst Contaminated Sludge
|GAS STREAM AND ODOR TREATMENT
|ZEOLOC® KM is an air filtration medium consisting of high-surface
area, modified aluminosilicate granules and potassium
permanganate. This unique product is protected by
U.S. Patent No. 5,278,112, licensed to Zeotech
Corporation. The purple granulaes are used
in air dryers, scrubber tanks, compressor intakes,
exhaust systems, computer rooms and general HVAC
KM removes hydrogen sulfide, ethylene,
mercaptans, various aldehydes, alcohols and many
other noxious gases. It is also used as a color
indicator in carbon sortion beds to determine when
carbon is present.
