Where come from the Agualite ?

The Agualite is the name given to her by AGUAGREEN granulate consisting of zeolites and polycrystals.

This mixture is used in the catalytic filtration his WATER REFINERS AGUAPURE

Where does the zeolite, rock crystal ?

Zeolite is an inorganic microporous natural mineral silicates belonging to the group. There are over forty zeolite families. Overview of some types of zeolite crystals:
Varieties of zeolites

The time discovery zeolites

1756. The Swedish mineralogist Axel Fredrik Cronstedt discovered the first zeolite mineral, called Stilbite. It recognizes zeolites as a new class of minerals composed of alumino-silicate hydrates and alkaline earths. Because of its nature intumescent when this mineral is heated by a torch flame, Cronstedt called this mineral "zeolite".

1840. Alexis Damour observed that the zeolite crystals can be reversibly dehydrated without any apparent change in their morphology and transparency.

1845. Schafhautle reports the hydrothermal synthesis of quartz by heating a silica gel with water in an autoclave.

1850. Thompson Way and clarify the nature of the ion exchange in land.

1858. Eichhorn demonstrates the reversibility of ion exchange in zeolites.

1862. S. C.Deville reported the first hydrothermal synthesis of zeolite, levynite.

1896. After observing that various liquids such as alcohol, benzene and chloroform were occluded in the zeolite, Friedel develops the idea that the structure of the dehydrated zeolites consists of a spongy matrix ouverte.En 1909 Grandjean observed that the dehydrated chabazite adsorbs ammonia, air, hydrogen and other molecules.

1925. Weigel and Steinhoff relate the first effect of "molecular sieves" and noted that the crystal dehydrated chabazite quickly adsorb water, methyl alcohol, ethyl alcohol and formic acid but neither acetone nor the ether or benzene.

1927. Leonard describes the first use of X-rays for identification in the inorganic synthesis.

1930. The first structures of zeolites are determined by Taylor and Pauling.

1932. Mc Bain establishes for the first time the term "molecular sieve" to define porous solids that act as sieves on a molecular scale. In the mid 1930s, the literature describes ion exchange, adsorption, molecular sieves, structural and mineral properties of zeolites and reports the synthesis of many zeolites. Barrer began his pioneering work in the adsorption of zeolites and their synthesis. It offers the first classification, based on molecular size considerations. In 1948, he reported the first complete synthesis of a zeolite similar to the natural zeolite under the name mordenite (Wikipedia).

Space science and environmental interest in the zeolite

NASA Study on the comparison of zeolites produced on earth and in spaceZeolites space photographed by NASA
Zeolite crystals which have been produced on earth are smaller and less regular than those which have been designed in space. This experience driving with the "Center for Advanced Microgravity Materials Processing at Northeastern University in Boston" was to better understand the synthesis of zeolites to improve in particular the treatment of ... oil and reduce fuel costs !

Some economic data

The annual global production of natural zeolite is about 4 million tonnes, of which 2.6 million tonnes is used mainly in the cement industry in China. Eastern Europe, Western Europe, Australia, and Asia are the main producers and supply most of the market's natural zeolites. In 2004, North America produced only 57,400 tonnes of natural zeolite, only about 1.5% of world production (U.S. Geological Survey, 2004).

Advantages in the use of Agualite rock crystal and polycrystals
