Purolite® A860 Anion Tannin Removal Resin
Purolite® A860 is a highly popular and effective anion exchange resin for the removal of tannins and natural organics
Purolite® A860 is designed specifically for the removal of tannins and dissolved organic matter from surface water to improve color and taste, and reduce organic precurssors that could lead to disinfection by-products formation upon chlorination.
Purolite® A860 is a strong base anion exchange resin (type 1 macroporous) with an acrylic matrix. Purolite® A860 demonstrates excellent regeneration capacity with a standard 10% salt brine (sodium chloride). A860 has a high capacity and strong resistance to fouling. It is an excellent choice for most surface water treatment applications where general tannin and organics removal is a primary objective.
- highly effective removal of tannins and other organic carbons
- efficient regeneration
- good resistance to organic fouling
- certified by the WQA to NSF/ANSI 61 standard for material safety
- safe and effective choice for potable water applications
Purolate® A860 is a popular replacement for Viqua Tannin Resin MIN-IRA958 which was used in all Viqua brand tannin filters prior to 2018.
