Muby Chemicals, established in 1976, is the pioneer manufacturer of Activated Alumina in various mesh sizes.

Activated alumina is manufactured from aluminium hydroxide by dehydroxylating it in a way that produces a highly porous material; this material can have a very high surface area. We offer material with surface area of 325 to 400 square metres/g. The compound is used as a desiccant to keep things dry by absorbing water from the air and as a carrier for slow release of absorbed chemicals. It is made of aluminium oxide (alumina; Al2O3). It has a very high surface-area-to-weight ratio, due to the many “tunnel like” pores that it has.

Activated alumina is used for a wide range of adsorbent and catalyst applications including the adsorption of catalysts in polyethylene production, in hydrogen peroxide production, as a selective adsorbent for many chemicals including arsenic, fluoride, in sulfur removal from gas streams (Claus Catalyst process).  Alumina is classed as an inert material and a filler for many applications.

We offer Activated Alumina Balls an adsorbent having high water adsorption capacity coupled with excellent mechanical strength. Our Alumina is manufactured by latest technology to ensurehigh quality properties such as Adsorption, Surface area, Pore Volume and Mechanical strength. Our product is used in PSA nitrogen gas plant and Air Dryer and by Oil & Gas Drilling and Petroleum Industries in several countries.

We offer product with following properties:
1. Very high surface area
2. Excellent resistance to attrition and crushing. High Mechanical Strength.
3. Resistant to fairly high temperatures and thermal shocks
4. Regenerate-able over several cycles.
5. Does not shrink
6. Offered in various sizes in a close size range. The range may be specified as 0.5 to 2mm, 2 to 5mm, 5 to 8mm etc.
