BENEFITS OF BEAR RIVER ZEOLITE

  • BRZ™ is almost pure clinoptilolite with a general formula of (Na, K, Ca)2-3Al3(Al, Si)2Si13O36.12H2O. The balance is primarily opaline or non-crystalline silica.
     
  • It contains approximately 3.5% potassium which is a plant nutrient.
     
  • It contains approximately 1.6% calcium which is a pH buffer for soils and plant nutrient.
     
  • It contains less than 0.5% sodium, which is toxic to plants. None of the sodium is water soluble.
     
  • When loaded with ammonium cations, it becomes a fertilizer.
     
  • No significant concentrations of toxic trace elements exist. No trace metal elements are soluble.
     
  • When dry, BRZ™ is light green. When wet the color is darker green.
     
  •  It holds up to 55% of its weight in water.
     
  • It has a high cation exchange capacity (“CEC”) of 190 to 220 meq/100 grams.
     
  • The high CEC allows the BRZ™ to be loaded with 1.9 to 2.2% nitrogen as ammonium.
     
  • A low clay content makes BRZ™ non-clouding in water and also low dust.
     
  • It has a very large surface area that is approximately 24.9 square meters per gram.
     
  • It is hard and resistant to attrition.
     
  • BRZ™ has good oil adsorption qualities
