Particle Size: 100% less than 40 microns
Animal Feed Grade (EU Approved)
Regulation (EC) No. 651/2013 of 9th July 2013
Clinoptilolite, a natural zeolite, with approximate empirical formula:
(Ca, Fe, K, Mg, Na)3-6Si30Al6O72.24H2O
We select our Zeolite (Clinoptilolite) for its purity, mineral composition and powerful natural properties. It is 100% free from added chemicals, emulsifiers or bulking agents.
Multiple uses including: Radioactive and Heavy Metal particle detox. Water filtration and softening. Air purification and oxygen generation. Soil conditioning. Heating and refrigeration. Cat litter deodorizer. Detergent additive.
In agriculture, clinoptilolite (a naturally occurring zeolite) is used as a soil treatment. It provides a source of slowly released potassium. If previously loaded with ammonium, the zeolite can serve a similar function in the slow release of nitrogen.
Zeolites can also act as water moderators, in which they will absorb up to 55% of their weight in water and slowly release it under the plant's demand. This property can prevent root rot and moderate drought cycles.
Clinoptilolite has also been added to chicken food, the absorption of water and ammonia by the zeolite made the birds droppings drier, less odoriferous and hence easier to handle.
