Lewatit® S 5528 is a food grade, macroporous, strongly basic anion exchange resin (type I) based on a crosslinked polyacrylate.. It is bead-shaped and has a special bead size distribution for use in the following processes:

Co-current system
Counter-current systems (Lewatit® WS system / fluidized bed)

Counter-current systems (Lewatit® VWS system / compound fluidized bed)

In its chloride form, Lewatit® S 5528 is suitable for the decolorization of:

Syrups from sugar production, especially cane sugar
Solutions of organic products, e. g. glycerin, amino acids

Lewatit® S 5528 is therefore highly recommended for use wherever complete and rapid removal of a relatively high concentration of organic substances is required. A use in combination with other Lewatit® adsorber resins such as Lewatit® S 6368 allows simultaneous fine polishing.
