Molecular Sieve 13X for Mercaptan Removal

Molecular Sieve 13X, which has the pore size, is about 10A. It can adsorb any molecular which has a dimension smaller than 10A. It has a very porous structure, and because of this special characteristic, it has a tendency to adsorb molecular which can be trapped into its structure.

Molecular Sieve 13X is available in two kinds of shape, one is Beads and the other is Pellets. Also, It is available in different sizes ranging from a diameter of 1.5-1.7 mm, 3.0-3.3 mm in Pellets and for beads, it is available in 1.7-2.5 mm as well as 3.0-5.0 mm.

Because of its characteristic, 13X Molecular Sieve for Mercaptan Removal from LPG Gas. Once LPG is passed through the bed of Molecular Sieve 13X, Mercapton from LPG can be adsorbed in the pore structure. Thus LPG free from mercaptan can be used to the manufacturing Aerosol products. Once 13X Molecular Sieve Adsorbed Mercapton, it will not be regenerated. Our Molecular Sieve 13X has a high crushing strength of more than 45N. Thus it will withstand high inlet pressure.  Apart from mercaptan removal, our Molecular Sieve 13X can also be used in Paraffin sweetening, solvent drying, refrigerant purifying. One of the main advantages of our Molecular Sieve 13X is easy to handle and noncorrosive and withstand with comparatively high temperatures. Molecular Sieve 13X gives great mechanical strength and higher adsorption capacity.
