Note: Purolite® S920Plus is a macroporous polystyrenic based chelating resin, with thiouronium groups designed for the selective removal of mercury and for the recovery of precious metals from industrial effluents. Mercury is strongly bound to the functional groups to form highly stable complexes, with high selective affinity compared with those of other heavy metals. These properties are largely unaffected by high chloride (or sulfate) content of the effluent. Effluent solutions which may typically contain 2 - 20 ppm of mercury can be treated to reduce the concentration in solution to less than 0.005 ppm. Purolite S920Plus can load up to 200g of mercury, or gold, or approximately 60g of platinum or palladium for each liter of resin, equivalent to 12.5, and 3.75 lb/ft3 respectively. Purolite S920Plus is designed for the removal of low concentrations of soluble mercury salts from waste streams and for the recovery of precious metals from rinse waters in the galvanic and electronic industries. It is also used in hydrometallurgy for the separation of precious metals from acid liquors. Mercury and precious metals are so strongly held, and run lengths are so long (thousands of hours) that it is not normally considered economic to regenerate the resin for reuse. Purolite S920Plus is more resistant to oxidation than many thiol based resins and contact with the atmosphere is not detrimental, however free chlorine and other strong oxidizing agents may damage the resin and their removal from solution by filtering through activated carbon is recommended.
