High Quality Bentonite

Steko cat litter made of the high-quality natural bentonite material. According to its properties it verges towards the clays of Wyoming (USA) which are considered to be the best in the world. 

The production process of the Combine allows producing bentonitic powders for all the spheres of application according to international standards. 

With assistance of experts of the branch research-and-production associations and universities the patented technology of mechanical activation was developed.

Bentonite can be applied as universal additive in animal feeds. It can be added both in wet animal feeds mixtures in a combination with bran, and in the granulated mixed fodders and premixes

Bentonite

Bentonite clay is a unique mineral with a layerd crystal structure and large surface area that allow it to quickly absorb and trap moisture and odors. Bentonite is a natural clay, which has the ability to swell more than 15 times its normal volume when placed in water. These properties, as well as nontoxic feature and chemical durability make bentonite an irreplaceable material in foundry engineering, building, drilling, wine filtration and in other areas.

The removal and recovery of uranium from contaminated surface, environment and ground water, as result of nuclear industries, has attracted more and more attentions. Several methods are available for removing of uranium, but adsorption among the others, is the most attractive. In case of management of radioactive waste, the adsorption of radionuclides plays significant role. Among the natural sorbents applied to the adsorption of uranium bentonites offer a number of advantages.

Radioactive Water Treatment by Bentonite

Granular Bentonite for Cat Litter

Clumping cat litters are typically made from bentonite clay, which is a highly absorbent clay that forms into solid clumps when your cat urinates. Bentonite clay  layerd crystal structure allows it to quickly absorb and trap moisture and odors.

We offer completely customizable Private Label options to meet the needs for any customer. Contact us to learn more.

STEKO Clumping Cat Litter is a premium fragrance free clumping litter. This product is sold primarily in pet specialty stores. 

Bentonite for Personal Care and Cosmetics

Our Bentonite is used as a stabilizer, thixotropy, and suspension agent in cosmetics and personal care products.  Applications include mud masks, sunscreen, baby and face powders, and face creams. This clay is made from minerals such as iron, sodium, calcium, potassium and magnesium, formed from volcanic ash. Adding water to the clay gives it a negative electric charge, which in turn, removes toxins from the body. 

Bentonite for Detergents

Bentonite for waterproof materials

In detergent, bentonite may be used as insoluble and inorganic builders. They swell in the presence of water to emulsify oily materials and hold fine particles of soil in suspension. Bentonite helps soften water by ion exchange. Laundry detergents and liquid hand cleansers/soaps rely on the inclusion of bentonite to remove the impurities in solvents and to soften fabrics.

Sodium Bentonite has the ability to absorb small amounts of water and to prevent the penetration of more water. Only the sodium bentonite generates the internal pressure when it gets wet necessary to form a waterproof seal. The fact that bentonite will form a waterproof seal to any impermeable material to which it is applied to or sandwiched between, makes it a vital component in the proper external placement of extruded polystyrene insulation because it forms a waterproof seal between the outside wall and the insulation.

STEKO supplier of high-quality sodium bentonite and production on the basis of it in Israel. Raw material mainly based on the Sarigyukh deposit (Republic of Armenia). The high-quality bentonite clay production at the Sarigyukh deposit was launched in 1967. Seven years later the production volume has reached to 50 thousand tons per year.

 

After a moderniastion of mining factory in 2009, Sarigyukh deposit is able to supply for about 100 thousand tons of high-quality sodium bentonite powders and granules per year. Today Sarigyukh deposit based factory processes and distributes its bentonite to European producers in England, France, Poland, Spain, Russia and Israel.

Common Types of Cat Litter

These days, many people owned by cats suffer from kitty litter confusion, and it's no wonder. The number of cat litters on the market is mind-boggling, and the companies that sell the stuff work night and day to one-up each other with clever packaging and advertising strategies.

Gone are the days of sand and ashes in the cat box. Walk into your local grocery, big box or pet store, and you'll be faced with litters made from a wide variety of materials such as clay, corn, silica gel crystals, recycled paper, wheat hulls, walnut shells, and bark, to name just a few. There are also more than a few sizes, textures, and scents to choose from.

  • Clumping clay. This type of litter is typically made from bentonite, which is a highly absorbent clay that forms into solid clumps when your cat urinates. Clumping clay makes litterbox scooping and cleaning easy. Drawbacks are that this type of litter is dusty, non-biodegradable, and heavy to cart around.
  • Non-clumping clay. This type of litter is made from clays other than bentonite. It absorbs urine but doesn't form clumps, so it's easy to leave bits of moist litter behind when you scoop the box. This means it will start to get smelly sooner rather than later, and may require more frequent changing than clumping clay. However, non-clumping litter is often cheaper than clumping, and some cats prefer it.
  • Silica gel crystals. The crystals are made of tiny silica gel beads similar to the desiccant found in the tiny pouches packaged as a preservative with foods, medications, and other products that can be damaged by excess moisture. Crystal litter is highly absorbent, controls odor well, and is almost dust-free. Some people even say it tracks less than other types of litter. Crystal litters are usually more expensive, but they tend to last longer. Downsides are that some cats don't like getting the crystals on their paws, and they can be dangerous if ingested in large amounts or over a long period of time, which happens when cats clean their feet.
  • Recycled paper. This is litter made from recycled paper that is turned into pellets or granules. Paper is dust-free, highly absorbent, and biodegradable. In pellet form, the paper doesn't form urine clumps, but the granule form does.
  • Pine. Pine litter is also recycled and is typically made from lumber scraps that are heat-treated to remove toxins, oils, and allergens from the wood. This type of litter comes in pellets, granules, or roughly crushed pine. It has a pine scent, which helps control odor. The granules and cobble (roughly crushed pine) are somewhat clumping, but in pellet form, the pine turns to sawdust that must be regularly replaced.
  • Corn. Corn-based litter is biodegradable, absorbent, and provides odor control. However, since most kitties ingest a bit of litter each day during grooming, and since corn is a problem ingredient for pets, I recommend avoiding this type of litter.
  • Wheat. Wheat litter is made from ground wheat. It clumps and provides odor control, is biodegradable, and is low on dust and tracking. Wheat can be another problem ingredient for cats, so I also suggest avoiding wheat-based litters as well.
  • Walnut shells. This litter is made from crushed walnut shells and is dark brown in color. Walnut shell litters have clumping ability, offer excellent odor control, are highly absorbent, and biodegradable.
  • Grass. Grass litter is new on the scene. It is a fine-grained litter made from grass fibers that is biodegradable, controls odor, and has good clumping ability.
