Zeolite


Zeolite is a mineral commonly used as commercial adsorbents. Natural zeolites form where volcanic rocks and ash layers react with alkaline groundwater. Naturally occurring zeolites are rarely pure and are contaminated by other minerals and metals. There is also Synthetic Zeolite. Synthetic zeolites, holds some key advantages over their natural analogs. It can be manufactured and requires significantly less time than the many years prescribed by nature. Zeolites biggest use is in the production of laundry detergents. Aireox does not use Zeolite in either of its forms, mined or artificially created. Are engineers feel that Zeolite's ability to absorb or otherwise remove chemical pollutants is far too low.
