Mine Application of Agrisorb


Agrisorb absorbs CO2 in personnel rebreathers for mine (minerís gas mask), fire and other safety systems It is also used in oxygen-based metabolism, in estimation respirators, breathing apparatus etc.


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.
