Zeolite Zeoclin

Clinoptilolite

Grade: 1.6 - 3mm  <300 microns

Uses: turf care, fertiliser manufacture, land remediation, swimming pool filter and waste water treatment

ZeoClin is a high quality natural zeolite (clinoptilolite). 

 

PLEASE NOTE: This product is not for human or animal consumption. 


Technical Background

Zeolites are a family of crystalline aluminosilicate minerals. In common with other zeolites, ZeoClin (clinoptilolite) has a three dimensional cage-like structure consisting of SiO4 and AlO4 tetrahedra joined by shared oxygen atoms. The negative charges of the AlO4 units are balanced by the presence of exchangeable cations which can be readily displaced by other substances, particularly ammonium and metal ions. This is known as cation exchange, and it is the high cation exchange capacity (“CEC”) of clinoptilolite which provides many of its useful properties.


Turf Care

ZeoClin, applied either by top dressing or “drill and fill” techniques, confers the following benefits:

 

  • Improves nutrient and fertiliser retention in the root zone
  • Granules absorb soluble nitrogen and potassium, reducing leaching of key nutrients
  • Porous granules increase aeration resulting in healthier turf
  • Improves germination rates
  • Helps protect against fertiliser scorch
  • Robust granules resist soil compaction

In addition, the use of ZeoClin as a perch layer on top of course backfill when installing drainage systems will minimise the loss of nutrients to ground water, helping to reduce nitrogen pollution and eutrophication.

 
Manufacture of Slow Release Fertilisers


ZeoClin is used in the manufacture of slow release fertilizers, helping to prevent the leaching of excess nutrients into watercourses, thus reducing problems such as nitrogen pollution and eutrophication, as well as reducing the quantity of fertiliser required.

 

Land Remediation

The remediation of contaminated land is an increasingly important issue in many regions of the world. Traditional methods of remediation have included soil washing and soil removal, which are both expensive and disruptive to the environment. An alternative approach is to create soil conditions which immobilise contaminants whilst providing the nutrients and water holding capacity necessary for plant growth. Due to its ability to adsorb a suite of heavy metal contaminants, ZeoClin is already playing an important role in this new technology.

Pool Filter - Waste Water Treatment

 

In swimming pools  Zeolite acts as an excellent filter removing ammonia and particulates. ZeoClin is used to remove ammonia from effluents.  It also has good selectivity for a number of heavy metal ions.
