Description

Applications
Molecular Sieves are used in a multitude of applications. This includes, but not limited to;

Compressed air drying as a polishing layer.

Extracting and purification of various gas streams.
Sweeten and drying of natural gases.
Production of high purity Hydrogen.

Superior performance when the air has been pre-dried, often used at the outlet end of the heatless dryer vessel when air must be dried to very low dew points (-100°F range).

Characteristics
Higher adsorption capacity at lower relative humidity than either activated alumina or silica gel.

Lower adsorption capacity at high relative humidity.
Requires higher temperature for regeneration than silica gel or activated alumina does.
“Sieves” molecules based on size and configuration thus molecular sieves are used to adsorb specific molecular types.
CNG II – Molecular Sieves designed specifically for natural gas application.
