A mineral like no other. Innovation from rock
Migulators® are based on the crystallization of a highly porous and unique mineral from the combination of volcanic ash with primeval ocean water. Under special conditions, there is a chance that the mineral will store high-quality nutrients while being free of unwanted pollutants. – which is why deposits, even of the same mineral, are as individual as students in a class. Minerals with the same name but different origins require careful examination with regard to their suitability for different applications! Amongst other variations, they exhibit siginifcant differences in terms of chemical composition, proportion of impurities or nutrients, physical properties.
Migulators are highly porous tectosilicates of volcanic origin with high cation exchange capacity. They are suitable for special activations to develop additional capabilities for their application in agriculture and industry. Their proportions of micropores and mesopores are uniquely high by European standards, enabling effective use in a variety of applications. The huge inner surface of the porous mineral serves as a platform for biochemical reactions.
Depending on the needs, migulators can:
buffer or amplify processes
in a target-oriented way
Because they were made that way by nature. To regulate biological processes, migulators absorb excess metabolites and pollutants. In return, they release their naturally stored nutrients, which are part of the regulatory process as a finely tuned mix of calcium, potassium, magnesium and sodium. Each of these elements affects the extent and rate of adsorption differently. Therefore, their composition has a significant impact in the application.
Only one single mineral deposit provides the right composition for migrators. The uptake and release of substances takes place through chemical processes such as cation exchange and adsorption. The effectiveness of binding is therefore determined by the cation exchange capacities (CEC), porosity and other parameters.
Long-term cooperation with our customers and research partners provides the basis for assured effects and reliable applications in practice. The results are validated in practical application tests conducted by research institutes.
Migulators are scientifically tested and proven in practice. A large number of our customers’ experiences confirm the economic and ecological advantages in applications under various practical conditions. We will be happy to send you results of studies and field tests by mail on request.
Without research, there’s no further development. Since the first experiences with zeolite-clinoptilolite in the field of water purification, long before the first products were distributed, we wanted to learn more about the special properties of zeolite.
We have started to research, relying on scientific findings. Effects were identified, researched in detail and from this we developed our products. Characteristics and capabilities of migulators are researched in cooperation of our in-house company laboratory with partner institutes.
