Purolite Corporation China MVI

MVI helps Purolite Corporation China resin manufacturer’s workforce in line with China’s newly updated occupational exposure limits for Chemical Hazardous Agents in the Workplace GBZ 2.1-2109 regulations

In line with China’s new occupational exposure limits for Chemical Hazardous Agents in the Workplace which took effect on 1 April 2020, Purolite Corporation China is using a Mercury Vapour Indicator (MVI) from global gas detection instrumentation manufacturer, ION Science to help ensure the health and safety of its employees. The handheld instrument is measuring mercury vapour levels in an area used for mercury intrusion porosimetry to calculate the porosity of speciality ion exchange resin technology.

Xihua Yu,
Purolite’s Lab Instruction Engineer:
“We chose the ION Science MVI over competitor instruments due to its simple, lightweight design and ability to detect mercury within three seconds, as well as the after sales service and technical support.”

Mercury intrusion porosimetry (MIP) is a technique used for the evaluation of porosity, pore size distribution, and pore volume (among others) to characterise a wide variety of solid and powder materials. The porosimeter employs a pressurised chamber to force mercury to intrude into the voids in a porous substrate. As pressure is applied, mercury fills the larger pores first. As pressure increases, the filling proceeds to smaller and smaller pores.

Xiua Yu, Purolite’s Lab Instruction Engineer:
“The ION Science MVI operates very well and provides fast, accurate results. Based on our experience so far, I would be pleased to recommend it to other manufacturing businesses.”
