Abstract

The enthalpy of hydration of purified clinoptilolite from Beli Plast, Bulgaria, and various cation-exchanged types such as Na-, K-, Ca- and Mg-clinoptilolite was determined by the adiabatic water-vapor absorption calorimeter. The hydration enthalpy becomes more exothermic in the sequence K, Na, Ca, Mg depending on hydration energy values of exchanged cations. Na-clinoptilolite would be an efficient heat exchanger in a wide temperature range of dehydration, 180–300°C, while Mg-clinoptilolite in higher temperatures, 300–350°C.
