Planktolime

Natural Zeolite with Hydrated and concentrated CaCO3

Description

PRESENTATIONS:

5kg, 25kg

SPECIFICATION:

Natural Zeolite with Hydrated and concentrated CaCO3

INDICATIONS

• Aquaculture grade Zeolite with highest Cat-ion Exchange Capacity (CEC).
• Zeolite functions in Aquaculture Molecular sieves zeolites are crystalline sodium or calcium aluminium silicates. They are graded or classified on the basis of their average pore diameter.
• A number of organic substances are lying at the pond bottom. These may contain unutilized food, dead plants & fish, excretion of fish, remains of FYM etc. All these substances decay. The proteinous portion in these substances is released in the form of ‘Ammonia’. It also releases other gases like sulphur dioxide, hydrogen sulphide etc.
• Before decomposing to ammonia all organic products come to ammonium carbonate form. If Zeolites are present at this stage, they absorb ammonia through its ‘Cat-ion Exchange Capacity’, thus developing a healthy environment for the prawns and fishes to grow.

Natural Zeolite (Hydrated Sodium Calcium Alumino-Silicate) with Hydrated and concentrated CaCO3

ACTION

• This material has three dimensional framework structures in which silicone and aluminium atoms are tetrahedrally co-ordinated to oxygen atoms. The framework enfolds cavities containing water molecules and cat-ions that are capable of undergoing dispersion and cat-ion exchange.
• Innovations in The Planktolime…
Zeolite earths in crude form many types of crystals. Only microcrystalline alkali earth metal, Aluminium Silicates are known as Zeolite. This is because the absorption of gases takes place through the surface area. Therefore only microcrystalline form of zeolite shall give desired results. Furthermore, zeolites having tetrahedral structure with maximum Calcium form are useful in Aquaculture. This is because Calcium ion is easily exchangeable with Ammonium ion.

BENEFIT

• Planktolime purifies water: It absorbs H2S (Hydrogen Sulphide), NH3 (Ammonia) and other toxic gases from water.
• It Cleans Pond Bottom: Planktolime absorbs bacteria, suspended solids, waste and dirty material.
• It Increases D.O. : Planktolime helps to increase the amount of Dissolved Oxygen in the pond bottom with special active elements SiO2 and AI2O3
• It Increased plankton : Because of improved water quality and special nutrients, Planktolime he-lps in better growth and reproduction of plankton.
• Deodoriser: Planktolime absorbs bad odour from water and pond bottom and develops a healthy environment for the prawns/fishes to grow.
• Improves water quality: Planktolime with its high CEC improves water quality by adjusting the pH value of the water.

DOSAGE AND APPLICATION

For pond preparation: 50 kgs or more per Acre.
During Culture:  20-30 kgs or more per Acre.
Mix Planktolime thoroughly with the same quantity of dry sand. Broadcast the mixture evenly all over the pond.

Important: Dosage and time can be adjusted based on prevailing culture conditions or as advised by your aquaculture consultant.
