Uranium is a radioactive mineral that naturally occurs in low concentrations. Certain
type of rocks such as granite contains it. The uranium gets deposited in the ground water
after a prolonged direct contact with these types of rocks.
While radioactivity levels are very low, there are some health issues from drinking uranium-contaminated
water. Studies have shown that high levels of uranium in the bloodstream can produce kidney damage.
Uranium presents an enormous affinity for Strongly Basic Anion (SBA) resins. The process is
extremely efficient at pH of 6 to 8.2. The efficiency of the process is greatly reduced at pH
of less than 5.6. Sodiun Chloride with a concentration of more than 20% is commonly used for resin
regeneration and complete uranium removal.
