Benefits of Denstone® 99 Support Media
- High purity – Denstone® 99 support balls are 99+% alpha alumina. With a maximum silica content of only 0.2% Denstone® 99 protects your catalyst bed and downstream equipment from fouling and coating caused by leached silica.
- Excellent thermal properties – Due to their high density, Denstone® 99 spheres can withstand temperatures up to 1650oC, so they are an excellent choice for heat retention and equilibration media.
- Superior chemical resistance – Denstone® 99 spheres can withstand the harsh environments of applications with olefin processes, such as ethylene dryers, where polymerization could be a problem with a less chemically resistant material.
- High strength – Denstone® 99 balls are manufactured to eliminate spalling and delamination within your reactor and prevents the occurrence of chipping, protecting your bed from plugging associated with the collection of splinters and fines.
