I have decided to take my dry washing to the next level and was thinking about resins. Does anybody know what happened to Thermax and Amberlite? Boy, when something disappears it disappears. I was pretty sold on the Thermax idea.

Dunno about those but I still have a drum of hard wood chips in front of lead/lag tanks of Purolilte PD206 and finish with a CAT 2 micron fuel can. It ain't been broke so far ...

The guys who fronted Thermax were Arbor Biofuels Company in Ann Arbor Michigan but "the biodiesel purification experts" are kaput, gone, no longer in the gameaccording to their website placer.

Arbor Biofuels Company split up & they closed the company.
However, one of the partners is still in business, however, he doesn't have a website.
The company is called Arbor Fabricating. They still make dry wash towers & sell resin.
He still sells Thermax both in gel form (like Purolite & Amberlite) and in the Macro form.
We sell their towers & still have access to Thermax too if you'd like to get some.
Give us a call or shoot me an email and I can get pricing on it for you.

Amberlite, produced by Rohm & Haus, was bought by 3M.
3M seems intent on killing off Rohm & Haus & using the IP of how Amberlite is made to make & sell their own dry wash resin. Amberlite is also now made in China and I've heard the quality of the product has gone downhill quite a bit.

Based on what Biodiesel plants have been telling me, it's next to impossible to get your hands on any Amberlite these days though.

Purolite is still in business, but the price of it has shot up considerably in the last couple years. We received another notice at the first of the year that they were going to raise the price on it again. But, it's still great stuff.

Thanks guys.sorry to hear about Arbor. I had the chance to have visited their early shop. They were serious about biodiesel & dry wash and had some neat toys and ideas.
