What is Agrisorb?
Brand Name: Agrisorb.


Akron Care has excelled in the field of manufacturing and developing Co2 Absorbent (Soda Lime) as per different standards. A unique Co2 Absorbent, Agrisorb has proved itself better than the classical and various other Co2 Absorbents present in the market. This success has been achieved after extensive R&D and Market Analysis on Soda Lime for 20 years.

What is Agrisorb:

Soda lime is a Carbon Dioxide absorbent used for removal of CO2 mainly from breathable gases, in medical, military,diving,mining and safety applications.

Agrisorb (Soda Lime) is a versatile CO2 absorbent for removal of carbon dioxide and other acidic contaminants from gas streams. Agrisorb (Soda Lime) is an active compound of mixture of hydroxides. This active compound is formed by mixing calcium and sodium hydroxides that has high affinity for Carbon Dioxide. It is supplied as hard, porous, irregularly shaped granules / uniform shaped granules. These granules have been processed to maximize Co2 Absorption and minimize dust formation.

Agrisorb is available in a number of different grades, depending on the application.

State of art manufacturing process used for Agrisorb ensures that dust formation is minimized and no blockage of canister mesh or circuit piping takes place.
  • It also ensures best performance by minimizing hindrance to flow of gases.
  • No problem of dust contamination arises to the user and equipment


  • Agrisorb removes CO2 from breathable gases in: MEDICAL, MILITARY,DIVING,MINING, and SAFETY APPLICATIONS.
  • Agrisorb (Soda Lime) is used to absorb expired CO2 during Anesthesia (in operation theatres).
  • It is used for removing Carbon Dioxide from oxygen-based metabolism, in estimation respirators, breathing apparatus, diving rebreathers.
  • Agrisorb (Soda Lime) removes CO2 from manned closed atmospheres, such as submarine, and closed circuit breathing apparatus, such as rebreathers.
  • It is extensively used in navies, for use by divers in submarines.
  • Agrisorb (Soda Lime) has its major applications in breathable gas applications where CO2 levels need to be controlled, for example in medical anesthetic breathing circuits, mines, commercial and leisure diving rebreathers, or in submarines.
In these applications, the breathable air is recirculated for re-use and therefore any exhaled carbon dioxide needs to be removed in order to prevent a build-up of carbon dioxide to toxic levels.


Agrisorb granules are hard enough to ensure that the granules do not break down under high humidity conditions and remain in perfect condition to use without any degradation.


Agrisorb is available in two forms:

Non-indicating type:
Granules do not change color on absorption of CO2.

Indicating Type:
Changes color on absorption of CO2.

Indicating Type Soda Lime is available in 2 forms:
  • Pink to White on CO2 absorption
  • White to Violet on CO2 absorption.

Partical Shape and Size:

Particle size and shape are particularly important in terms of the performance of Soda lime in its intended application. All Agrisorb grades are irregularly sized granules, with low dust and excellent attrition resistance.

Particle Shape:
Agrisorb (Soda Lime) is produced with an irregular shaped profile giving higher surface to volume ratio compared with other classical soda lime products. Technically, the irregular shaped profile ensures maximum CO2 penetration into the particles, by minimizing the distance to the center of the particle, thereby increasing the C02 capacity of the product.

Intrinsic capacity measurments have demonstrated that Agrisorb has significantly higher capacity for carbon dioxide absorption compared with other Soda Lime products.

Other Particle Shapes:
For certain applications, the profile of the particles is circular/cylindrical or as per customer specifications in order to achieve specific performance for that application. The water content can also be varied depending on the application.

The point to be ensured is that the shape of the granules should maximize CO2 absorption and minimize dust formation.

Particle Size:
Another key factor in the performance characteristics of Soda lime is the particle size distribution.

Particle size has an effect on the speed of reaction, which in turn affects the volume of the reaction zone and the capacity of the absorber containing the Agrisorb. In general terms, the smaller the particle size, the faster the reaction and the smaller the reaction zone volume. However, the smaller the particle size, the greater the pressure drop across the absorber which in some applications (particularly breathing applications such as diving rebreathers and medical anaesthesia) is a critical factor in absorber design. Therefore a well design particle shape/size will look to optimise these effects - an area where Akroncare has proved extremely proficient.

In summary, compared with other classical soda lime products, Agrisorb has a high absorption capacity for carbon dioxide, low dust levels, and excellent attrition resistance.

Agrisorb (Soda Lime) has a well-designed particle size that optimizes the reaction time, reaction zone volume and the pressure drop across the absorber.

Technical Assistance:

Akron Care provides high level of technical support, according to the needs of the customer. Based on extensive experience we can offer assistance with the sizing and design of Soda Lime.

Compared with classical Soda Lime products, Agrisorb (Soda Lime) has a high absorption capacity for carbon dioxide, low dust levels, and excellent attrition resistance.


We follow strict control, and batch acceptance criteria. Our soda lime test methods also conform to pharmacopoeia standards. Agrisorb (Soda Lime) is manufactured under rigorous Statistical Process operations and is governed by Standard Operating Procedures, which form the basis of our quality system.
