Abstract

Siliziumcarbide (SiC) is a novel non-oxide ceramic material. We tested differently preconditioned SiC and aluminum-oxide ceramics (P80) with respect to their influence on the solution passing through. For this we used a cation standard, an anion standard and a soil solution. Both ceramics released considerable amounts of Na and Al. However, in most cases SiC showed better results for anions and dissolved organic carbon. Therefore it may be a promising task to improve the properties of SiC by minimizing sinter additives and optimized conditioning procedures, and develop improved suction cups.
