Behavior of Silica in Ion Exchange Systems

Silica is poorly ionized at neutral pH and has limited solubility. Membrane and precipitation processes can be quite effective at elevated pH but are either ineffective or less than wonderful at neutral pH. Demineralizers, with hydroxide-form anion resin, remain one of the best methods for removing silica, especially when TDS removal is also required.
