Purolite Removes Perchlorate From Municipal Drinking Water Systems

Purolite continues to lead the industry with a comprehensive line of single-use and regenerable resins for perchlorate removal. Below is a listing of the major resins used for remediation of contaminated ground or potable water:

  • Purolite A532E – single use “load & burn”
  • Purolite A532EBF – buffered version of Purolite A532E

Also, in conjunction with Applied Research Associates, we offer our WIP perchlorate removal process, using patented regenerable weak base anion resin technology. This technology is ideally suited for elevated levels of perchlorate (e.g. 100 to 1,000 ppb and higher). The technology has also been demonstrated to simultaneously remove perchlorate and nitrate and has the capability to remove other oxyanions (e.g. selenate, chromate, molybdate, pertechnetate, perrhenate).

Purolite A532E is a hydrophobic anion resins that offer the highest selectivity for perchlorate and pertechnetate. 

Purolite provides a full array of services with experienced personnel for handling all resin operations to end users and OEMs.

In the USA, we utilize our bulk tankers for fast and efficient unloading and loading of resins. We contract with approved facilities for disposal of spent resins by incineration and can provide a final certificate to show proper waste resin disposal, using full chain-of-custody controls.


Advantages of Purolite ion exchange resins for perchlorate removal include:
  • Low operating cost with simple system design, requiring minimum operator attention.
  • Purolite can provide throughput breakthrough modeling with our proprietary simulation program.
  • Customizable solution for simultaneous removal of other contaminants of concern.
