The MODIKS sorbent is an inorganic sorbent based on manganese dioxide. The composite version, MODIKS-K, includes natural aluminosilicate as the carrier for the sorption media. Manganese dioxide captures ions of strontium, plutonium, uranium, and radon decay-products from water solutions.
The standard version of MODIKS is most effective for use in a static mode (the introduction of the sorbent into the solution, followed by stirring and separation). The recommended ratio of is 10 kg to 1000 liters with a contact time of 3 hours. The efficiency of extraction is 70 - 95%.
MODIKS K is recommended for use in a dynamic mode at a rate of filtration of the solution of 10 column volumes per hour and a sorbent layer thickness of 20 cm. The optimum ratio of height to diameter of a column in the sorbent bed is 2.5 - 3.5.
