Lewatit® S 5228 is a food grade, gelular, weakly basic anion exchange resin based on a crosslinked polyacrylate of a special bead size distribution.

Due to its acrylic structure, Lewatit® S 5228 is able to adsorb and desorb naturally occuring organic substances very effectively. Its high total capacity, its outstanding mechanical stability and its excellent resistance to osmotic shocks make it unique for all demineralization applications.

Lewatit® S 5228 is particularly suitable for the following applications:

  • the demineralization of aqueous solutions such as gelatine, fruit juices, whey and food acids operated with co-current or modern counter-current systems like e.g. Lewatit® WS System
  • the removal of organic matter

If using Lewatit® S 5228 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.
