Molecular Sieve Desiccants
Molecular Sieves or Zeolite are normally used in the process of drying gases and liquids. Molecular Sieves are a crystalline composition with uniform pores that is measured in angstroms. This composition makes Molecular Sieve more effective than other types of desiccants.
Molecular Sieve Desiccants are extremely effective at removing water from liquids and gases. They are even more effective silica gel or activated alumina, because of their crystalline composition; they can create virtually water-free products. These sieves are very useful in cryogenic operations where liquefaction of gases is required and water must be eliminated to avoid freezing.
Molecular sieves offer a variety of adsorption selectivity based on molecular size, molecular affinity for the sieve crystal surface, and shape of the molecule. Using this type of system is exceptionally uncomplicated for diminishing impurities to practically indiscernible levels compared to other liquid separation systems. The ease of use and superior efficiency when compared to other adsorption systems makes the most popular engineering solution a molecular sieve system.
Molecular sieves are used for drying gas streams with in the petroleum industry; used to dry solvent within a laboratory along with a extensive range of catalytic applications. Additionally, Molecular Sieves are used in a great many air filtration and liquid filtration scenarios.
Molecular sieves can be regenerated by heating it to an optimal temp from 130°C to 250°C.
