Thermax Tulsion T45-BD Ion Exchange Resin for Biodiesel Purification


Sold in factory sealed bags of 10kg.

'Gross Working Volume' in Litres of your tower can be identified by measuring your tower and comparing to the chart HERE

Tulsion T45-BD is supplied in dry form (<3% H2O Content), unlike some other resins which are supplied saturated, or part saturated

You will require a "Resin Tower", a selection of which can be found HERE

To determine the size of the tower required for use with Tulsion T45-BD (in terms of the volume of the resin bed needed) simply half the intended flow rate. For example, to purify Bio Diesel at a rate of 200 lph, a bed volume of 100 litres would be required, so a tower of 200 litres maximum capacity could be required, as the resin needs 50% of the tower volume for expansion as it absorbs impurities

Thermax recommend that the depth of the resin bed should be a minimum of 24 Inches, so a 48 Inch tower would be the most appropriate starting size, our 0735 & 0848 Towers being by far the most popular. It is understood that a tower of 48 inches in height is a sizeable item to accomodate and fairly costly, so 35 Inch towers are most common, however we recommend a 48 Inch tower if it is within budget and can be accomodated, this will provide the best single pass performance for your investment


THERMAX® TULSION T45-BD is a dry polishing media specifically formulated for removing by-products remaining after transesterification to produce biodiesel

THERMAX® TULSION T45-BD is designed for use in “purification” vessels installed after phase separation. Point of use can either be before demethylation to remove catalyst and glycerin and prevent back reactions or after demethylation as a “final” polishing step.This media may replace magnesium silicate “wash” and water wash. THERMAX® TULSION T45-BD improves plant productivity and lowers operation costs while enabling ASTM or EN specifications for B100 to be achieved

THERMAX® TULSION T45-BD has a long life before exhaustion. This life is dependent upon the point of installation in the biodiesel process and on the level of impurities in the untreated biodiesel

THERMAX® TULSION T45-BD functions both as a dehydrating (desiccant) media and as an ion exchange polishing media. As a desiccant THERMAX® TULSION T45-BD has a high loading capacity to absorb free glycerin. Trace methanol and water although being absorbed to a limited degree should be removed by stripping in the demethylation column. Additionally the exceptional exchange capacity removes residual catalyst, and salts that remains after phase separation

THERMAX® TULSION T45-BD is flowable both in the dry form and when exhausted, making it easy to handle during installation and removal from “purification” vessels. THERMAX® TULSION T45-BD is fully compatible for use in methyl ester and ethyl ester purification processes

THERMAX® TULSION T45-BD can be washed with methanol on site several time to maintain it's ability to remove glycerin

The actual life of THERMAX® TULSION T45-BD will vary depending on process designs and operating characteristic of methyl ester feed quality

Once THERMAX® TULSION T45-BD is ready for disposal, it should be disposed of in approved landfills or facilities according to local regulations. Check with your local waste management company for proper disposal instructions
