A&C Pure Water Treatment Pty Ltd is the leading ion exchange resin supplier Australia-wide. Providing high-quality resin products at competitive prices. We have set the bar high in the ion exchange resin market, even when put against known brands.
Applications of ion exchange resins in the water treatment industry are well-known, such as the removal of water hardness, scale build-up, impurities, nitrates, arsenic and more. Apart from that, ion exchange resins have a range of applications across industries, including food production, metal separation, catalysis, biodiesel filtration and chromatography.
Ion exchange resins play a crucial role in the separation process of food and beverages, giving them purity, shelf life, pleasant taste, and good appearance that meets specifications.
Ion exchange resins are widely applied in water treatment industry, such as water softening, removal of contaminants and hazardous metal ions from waste water so it can be safely reused.
Ion exchange resins can be used as drug carriers. They are also used to overcome pharmaceutical formulation problems such as bitter taste, poor stability, deliquescence, and poor dissolution.
Ion exchange resins are used to prepare de-ionized water. This kind of ultra pure water is tailored to use as cooling system in wire edm, high speed edm drilling, laser cutting and metal welding applications.
Ion exchange resins are commonly used to extract, separate, and concentrate metals. For example, they are cost effective approach to extract high-purity lithium, nickel, cobalt. These metals are essential for EV batteries and in growing demand.
Development of renewable biodiesel fuels has recently become more important due to energy crisis. Ion-exchange resins purify the biodiesel through dry washing process, which is a popular practice with less waste water discharges.
We are one of the sought-after ion-exchange resin suppliers in Australia. Our resin products are characterised by specific properties such as selectivity towards particular ions, ion exchange capacity, mechanical strength, osmotic stability.
We only import from high quality ion-exchange resin manufacturers whose products meet all standards.
Our supplier Suyuan Technology (China) is a leading ion exchange and hydraulic hi-tech enterprise with excellent technical know-how and dedicated customer service.
As Ion exchange resin distributors, we are looking for strategic partnerships in different parts of the world.

Ion exchange is a process in which dissolved ions get removed from a solution and then get replaced with other ions that have a similar (or the exact same) electrical charge. The ion exchange resin, then, is the medium used to facilitate that ion exchange reaction. This resin is made out of polymers that create a system of hydrocarbons.
The ion exchange process is commonly used throughout numerous industries. An example of ion exchange application is water softening, which effectively reduces the amount of magnesium and calcium content in the water. Ion exchange resins can also be used for the removal of toxic metals from water.
The main industrial applications of ion exchange resins include:
There are many advantages and disadvantages of using ion exchange process in industrial applications. Understanding what these pros/cons are should help you identify if this technique is right for you.
Advantages of Ion Exchange
The primary advantages of the ion exchange process include:
Disadvantages of Ion Exchange
Despite the many benefits of using ion exchange resins in the appropriate separation processes, challenging issues can arise, which include:
As a general rule, you can expect an ion exchange resin to last about 10 to 15 years in water treatment. Over time, thermal degradation alters the resin’s molecular structure such that it is no longer able to bind with the functional groups of ions, resulting in compromised operational performance and shorter product life.
Generally, used ion exchange resins are dumped in landfill in the exhausted form, typically in the Na, K, Ca or Mg form for the cation resin, and Cl, CO3 or SO4 for the anion. The resin in this state is non-hazardous and can be safely disposed of in general waste.
The disposal of resins where the resins have been used for non-traditional water purification uses, and may be contaminated with heavy metals or radioactive anions or cations, then the nature of the contaminant determines the safe disposal method :-
Acid or alkali – treat with alkali or acid to render the resin into the exhausted form, while generating a neutral elutant. Dispose of the exhausted resin in the normal way.
Heavy metals – concentrate the heavy metals through regeneration, then treat the resin as for acid or alkali. The concentrated heavy metals will be subject to specific regulations.
Radioactive contamination – check with the federal regulations, but these would be stored in an approved facility until the radiation flux meets the regulated maximum, then they may be disposed of according to the appropriate regulations.
