Zeolite has the properties of adsorption, ion exchange, catalysis, acid and heat resistance, so it is widely used as adsorbents, ion exchangers and catalysts, and can also be used for gas drying, purification and sewage treatment. Used as a soil conditioner in agriculture, it can protect fertilizer, water, and prevent pests and diseases. Zeolite also has "nutritional" value. Adding 5% of zeolite powder to the feed can speed up the growth of poultry and livestock, have a strong body and have fresh meat and a high egg production rate. In terms of environmental protection, it is used to treat waste gas and wastewater, remove or recover metal ions from wastewater and waste liquid, and remove radioactive pollutants in wastewater.
Due to the porous silicate nature of zeolite, there is a certain amount of air in the pores. It is often used as an anti-riot boiling agent. It is widely used in the petroleum and chemical industries, and in the light industry for papermaking, synthetic rubber, plastics, and resins. , Paint filler and quality color, etc. In national defense, space technology, ultra-vacuum technology, development of energy, electronic industry, etc., it is used as an adsorption separator and desiccant. In the building materials industry, it is used as a cement hydraulically active admixture to burn artificial lightweight aggregates to make lightweight and high-strength plates and bricks. In medicine, zeolite is used for the determination of nitrogen in blood and urine. Zeolite has also been developed as a health product for anti-aging and removing heavy metals accumulated in the body.
