Zeolite with the best price, quality relationship

Apakah Baja Zeolite?

Struktur jaringan kristaline baja Zeolite merupakan struktur yang optimum untuk elemen-elemen dan molekul-molekul yang telah terpilih. Ia sarat dengan kalsium, magnesium, potassium dan mempunyai kandungan sodium yang amat rendah. Kadar ketelusannya ialah 42%.

 

Zeolite menarik molekul-molekul dan elemen-elemen tertentu yang sesuai dengan strukturnya dan kepada caj negatifnya seperti ammonium, potassium, kalsium dan magnesium. Ia juga mampu menapis elemen-elemen zink, plumbum, kuprum dan lain-lain elemen logam berat (heavy metals) melalui sistem bio-filternya.

 

Zeolite adalah mineral semujadi yang menakjubkan kerana kebolehan luar biasanya untuk menyerap, kandung lepas ( hold release) dan menukar pelbagai kimia, nutrien, toxin (racun), dan ion-ion mengikut keperluan semasa. Zeolite dibentuk dari komponen lahar gunung berapi juta tahun dahulu yang kami import dari Indonesia.

 

Baja Zeolite memiliki struktur atom dalaman yang telus yang menyediakan ruang yang terbuka dengan rangkaian ruang-ruang yang memberikan ia permukaan yang luas (sehingga 450m2/g) dan ketelusan yang tinggi (sehingga 45%) untuk memerangkap dan menukar unsur-unsur, air dan lain-lain molekul tanpa mengubah strukturnya. Baja Zeolite sangat aktif, tidak mudah larut dan mempunyai mineral semulajadi yang stabil (sebahagian dari kumpulan hydrated alumino silicates) dan sesuai digunakan sebagai penambahan organik perladangan dan perkebunan. Ia mempunyai caj negative diimbangkan dengan unsur-unsur  bebas yang bercaj positif. Ini menyediakan perangkap yang sangat sesuai untuk unsur-unsur positif seperti ammonium yang mempunyai kandungan nitrogen yang tinggi dan potassium yang akan dilepaskan pada kadar yang diperlukan oleh tumbuhan.

 

Mineral utama yang terdapat di dalam baja Zeolite ialah clinoptilolite yang merupakan silikat kalsium, potassium, magnesium dan alumino dan memiliki kadar penukaran cation (CEC) +120 meq./100g. Baja Zeolite amat keras dan rendah dalam kandungan sodium berbanding dengan baja jenis lain yang terdapat di pasaran, dan dengan itu amat tahan lasak dan sesuai untuk kegunaan perladangan dan perkebunan

 

Baja Zeolite mempunyai keserasian terutama dengan ammonium (N H4+), Potassium (K+), Calsium (Ca+) Magnesium (Mg+) dan elemen-elemen lain yang membuat ia amat berguna sebagai bahan tambahan tanah, kompos dan baja untuk mengumpul, menyimpan dan secara perlahan melepaskan nutrien baja yang kritikal.

Zeolite Technical Specification

Product Introduction

Zeolitic mineral is a naturally occurring hydrated sodium potassium calcium aluminosilicate (of the subtype clinoptilolite) that in the soil environment can be considered very stable. Zeolite considerably raises the Cation Exchange Capacity in its agricultural / horticultural applications. The zeolite is able to freely exchange certain plant nutrients, acting to significantly improve fertilizer utilization. Cationic nutrient ions, such as those of calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium and particularly ammonia are exchanged in this way.

There are different qualities of zeolite in the market. The simplest way to determine the quality is by checking the CEC (Cation Exchange Capacity) value. The high CEC makes Zeolite particularly efficient and special in holding and slow releasing the valuable nutrients to the plants. Basically, the better quality of the zeolite will have the higher CEC value. Our CEC value is between 120-160m.e.q/100g which is one of the highest in the market.

Zeolite In Soil Nutrient Holding & Release

Zeolite attracts and retains ammonium, potassium, calcium & magnesium as well as many trace elements. It has the greatest affinity for ammonium and potassium but when a plant is taking up the ammonium or potassium off the zeolite, the zeolite attracts calcium from phosphorus mineral apatite such as rock phosphate or locked up phosphorus in soil to balance the zeolites negative charge. This reaction releases free phosphorus. The plant extracts the ammonium, potassium and other nutrients by active uptake from roots.

 

This phosphorus release reaction with ammoniated zeolite has been established by the United States Geological Survey and the University of Colorado soil Science Dept.

 

The nutrient release from the Zeolite is plant driven setting up a natural cycle of nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus release. The Zeolite will recharge when an ammonium or potassium source becomes available either naturally or applied. The zeolite prevents free nutrients from leaching.

How Zeolite Improves Fertilizer Efficiency

Without Zeolite:

1.      Broadcasting of NPK fertilizer / any fertilizer onto soil surface.

2.      Irrigation after application reduces nitrogen losses due to volatilization – nitrogen lost as ammonia gas

3.      Irrigation washes fertilizer into the root zone of plants

4.      Plants can take up fertilizer required whilst it remains in the root zone. Some fertilizer lost through early leaching.

5.      Large losses of fertilizer which move out of the root zone (leaching) as sandy soil is not capable of holding high levels of nutrients.

 

With Zeolite:

1.      Broadcasting of fertilizer to soil that has had an application of zeolite possible shallow incorporated; or  broadcasting of fertiliser including zeolite (mix or coating)

2.      Less risk of volatilization losses as zeolite soaks up free ammonia.

3.      Irrigation washes fertilizer into the root zone of plants whilst some fertilizer remains bound up in zeolite

4.      Fertilizer in zeolite remains in root zone until it is required by the plant.

5.      Less fertilizer losses from leaching and fertilizer from zeolite becomes available to extend fertilizer life.

6.      Long term soil improvements (increase in CEC and nutrient retention in soil).

Zeolite In Agriculture

Zeolite has been used in agriculture for decades around the world but is just recently being recognized in Malaysia as a profitable and responsible addition to many current agricultural practices. Farmers in Japan have been using zeolite since 1965 as a dietary supplement for livestock and as a soil amendment for sandy, clay poor soils. Bulgaria was home to the first artificial soil using zeolite in the late 1970’s, Italians use zeolite to exterminate aphids in fruit trees and NASA even uses zeolite as a growing medium in space. Apparently zeolite can also be use for pollution control, mining, stock feeds, aquaculture, turf and vermiculture.

 

Zeolite (Agrolite and Zeoplus) is an amazing natural mineral because of its extraordinary ability to absorb, hold, release, and exchange different chemicals, nutrients, toxins and ions according to need. Zeolite sold by our company is a naturally occurring hydrated sodium potassium calcium alumino silicate (of the subtype clinoptilolite) which was formed from the glass component of volcanic ash millions of years ago. We own the top quality 300 million year old zeolite deposit with inferred resources of many millions metric ton reserves in Sukabumi, Indonesia.

 

Zeolite is a mineral with infinite, three-dimensional, honeycomb like channels that allow it to lose and gain water reversibly. Zeolite is also negatively charged (anionic) by nature that makes it attract certain positively charged ions (cations) like nutrients, heavy metals and offensive odors on a molecular level. A high CEC (cation exchange capacity) is why Agrolite and Zeoplus is one of the best agricultural zeolites available in the world.

 

Zeolite is a natural super porous mineral. It carries a negative charge balanced by freely moving cations with positive charges. this provides an ideal trap for positive cations like nitrogen rich ammonium and potassium which are then released when demanded by plants. Zeolites have a very open framework with a network of pores giving it a large surface area for trapping and exchanging valuable nutrients.

 

With the current high price of chemical fertilizers zeolite can be used to extend their efficiency and performance. Blending fertilizer with zeolite can produce the same yield from less fertilizer applied because of the reduction of volatilization and leaching losses. It is particularly suitable for banding under drip irrigation planting where it will assist water infiltration, distribution and retention. When fertigation is practiced it will actively hold the nutrients in the root zone. Zeolite can hold nutrients in the root zone for plants to use when required. This leads to more efficient use of N and K fertilizers – either less fertilizer for the same yield or the same amount of fertilizer lasting longer and producing higher yields.

 

An added benefit of zeolite application is that unlike other soil amendments (gypsum and lime) it does not break down over time but remains in the soil to help improve nutrient and water retention permanently. With subsequent applications the zeolite will further improve the soil’s ability to retain nutrients and produce improved yields. Furthermore, zeolite is not acidic. In fact it is marginally alkaline and its use with fertilizers can help buffer soil pH levels thus reducing the need for lime applications.

 

Zeolite can also assists water infiltration and retention in the soil due to its very porous properties and the capillary suction it exerts. Acting as a natural wetting agent, it is an excellent amendment for non wetting sands and to assist water distribution through soils.

Local Trial By Malaysian Palm Oil Board (MPOB)

The Malaysian Palm Oil Board (MPOB) agronomic research team critically analyzed NPK fertilizer combinations, then verified them in trials conducted from 1990 onwards in order to formulate a fertilizer with optimum balanced nutrients ratio for maximum yield of oil palm (Tarmizi et al, 2003).

 

The study concludes the advantages of using urea-based fertilizer with zeolite as conditioner as (MPOB Information Series. ISSN 1511-7871. June 2007)

 

1.      Improved cost-effectiveness because of reduced nutrient losses and improve nutrient uptake

2.      The fertilizer contains balanced nutrient suitable for oil palm planted on various soils.

3.      For problematic soils, the amounts used can be easily adjusted by applying more of paticular nutrients.

4.      The fertilizer gas a long shelf-life without caking, can be applied manually or by a mechanical spreader.

5.      The fertilizer can reduce the number of application rounds because it contains all the nutrients needed. Hence it reduces the fertilizer application cost.

Consistent International Trial Results

Zeolite has been trialed under a wide range of growing conditions in various parts of the world. These trials have ranged from glasshouses to intensive vegetable growing. All trials have given consistently good commercial results with soil and nutrient efficiency improvements. Trials have been undertaken under both organic and inorganic growing processes and, more importantly, using a range of fertilizer options.


Results of Carrot Trial at Frankston, Australia

  1. 1. Carrots on the left without Zeolite
  2. 2. Carrots on the right with Zeolite

Natural zeolites are used extensively in Japan as amendments for sandy, clay-poor soils (Minato H 1968, Koatsu Gasu 5:536547). The pronounced selectivity of clinoptilolite NH4 + and K+ also was exploited in Japan in slow-release chemical fertilizers. By using clinoptilolite-rich tuff as a soil conditioner, significant increases in the yields of wheat (13–15%), eggplant (19–55%), apples (13–38%), and carrots (63%) were reported when 4–8 tonne/acre zeolite was used (Torii K Sand L B, Mumpton F A 1978, in Natural Zeolites: Occurrence, Properties, Use, eds Sand L B, Mumpton F A (Pergamon, Elmsford, NY), pp 441450. )


The addition of clinoptilolite increased barley yields (Van Bo N (1988) Soviet Agric Sci 12:6264). It also increased the yields of potatoes, barley, clover, and wheat after adding 15 tonne/hectare to Ukrainian sandy loams (Mazur G A, Medvid G K, Grigorta T I 1984, Pochvovedenie 10:7378).


Clinoptilolite amended to a potting medium for chrysanthemums behaved like a slow-release K-fertilizer, yielding the same growth for the plants as daily irrigation with Hoagland’s solution (Hershey D R, Paul J L, Carson R M 1980, HortScience 15:8789.).

The addition of NH4 +-exchanged clinoptilolite in greenhouse experiments resulted in 59% and 53% increase in root weight of radishes in medium- and light-clay soils, respectively (Lewis M D, Moore F D, III, Goldsberry K L Pond W G, Mumpton F A 1984, in Zeo-Agriculture: Use of Natural Zeolites in Agriculture & Aquaculture, eds Pond W G, Mumpton F A (Westview, Boulder, CO), pp 105112).


A 10% addition of clinoptilolite to sand used in the construction of golf-course greens substantially reduced NO3-leaching and increased fertilizer-N uptake by creeping bent-grass, without disturbing the drainage, compaction, or “playability” of the greens (Petrovic A M1993, Program & Abstracts: Zeolite ’93: 4th International Conference on Occurrence, Properties & Utilization of Natural Zeolites, Boise, Idaho, Int. Comm. Nat. Zeolites, Brockport, NY, abstr. pp 162164) ( Huang Z T 1992, Ph.D. thesis, Cornell Univ. Ithaca, NY)

Root

Comment: This photograph shows the root system of a plant at 10 weeks. Although not terribly clear, dotted along each root are dozens of tiny Zeolite particles. The Zeolite particles are bound to the root. The Zeolite, particularly the smaller particles, is bound quite tightly to the root and cannot be removed without damaging the root. In some cases the Zeolite particle attached is quite large (about the size of a grain of Sand)
