This non-hazardous synthetic product is the first choice for several complex applications due to its ability to control the consistency of pore size during the manufacturing process. Different types of Molecular sieve desiccant are used based on the industrial needs, adsorption capacity, and particular application. These are 3A, 4A, 5A, 13X molecular sieve. They are available in beads, pellets and powder forms which are used for adsorption and removal of moisture for various industrial products. These types of molecular sieves are used depending on the adsorbent requirements of different industries.
- Refining air
- 3A molecular sieve is used for drying several hydrocarbons and non-hydrocarbon gases and liquids such as cracked gas, acetylene and propylene. It can also be used for dehydrating alcohol and solvents.
- 4A molecular sieve is used for dehydrating and purifying various hydrocarbon and non-hydrocarbon gases and liquids such as argon gas, refrigerants, medicines, electronic components, etc.
- 5A molecular sieve is used for separating the chain of hydrocarbons, for drying natural gas and for producing high levels of pure hydrogen. It is used commercially for drying and refining the air, petroleum, and gas in different industries. Type 5a beads and pellets are also used for adsorbing the oxygen and for separating nitrogen from the air for petrochemical industries.
- 13X molecular sieves are used for dehydrating the natural gas, LPG and various petrochemical liquids and gases. The degree of water removal depends on the temperature and humidity of the gas.
