Lewatit® S 2568 is a food grade, macroporous, monodisperse, strongly acidic cation exchange resin based on a styrene-divinylbenzene copolymer.

Lewatit® S 2568 is especially applicable for:

  • the decationization of solutions of organic products, e.g. sugar beet, sugar cane, starch sugar, glycerine, gelatine, whey and food acids, etc.
  • the extraction of amino acids, e.g. lysine
  • the softening of solutions, especially of sugar thin juices

Lewatit® S 2568 is adding special features to the resin bed:

  • high exchange flow rates during regeneration and loading
  • a good utilization of the capacity, a low rinse water demand
  • homogeneous throughput of regenerants, water and solutions; therefore an homogeneous working zone
  • nearly linear pressure drop gradient for the whole bed depth; therefore an operation with higher bed depth possible
  • good separation behaviour of the components in a mixed bed application

If using Lewatit® S 2568 to treat potable water and the aqueous solutions listed above, special care should be given to the initial cycles of the new resin. Please refer to the recommended start-up conditions available on request.
