Molecular Sieves – A Better Understanding A lot has been written about molecular sieves and their role in keeping moisture away from packed items and industrial operations. At both these places and more, molecular sieves work around-the-clock to remove excess vapour molecules from the surroundings so that the packed items are not affected by water

Molecular Sieve 3A is an Alkali metal Alumino-Silicate, Potassium form of type 3A Crystal Structure. Having pored size of 3A or 3 Angstroms molecule larger than 3A will not be able to be adsorbed. Basically 3A is formed when part of the Sodium Ions of the 4 Angstroms sieve are replaced by Potassium Ions. The

Molecular Sieve is a desiccant that has very small holes of precise & uniform size. These holes are small enough to block large molecules while allowing small molecules to pass. Molecular Sieve is available in 3A, 4A, 5A and 13x having named according to their pore diameter. The Molecular Sieve suited for adsorption of Mercapton

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

Ethanol can be produced as a petrochemical by the hydration of ethylene or naturally by fermenting sugars with yeast. Industrial grade ethanol is often produced by the hydration of ethylene in the petrochemical industry. Ethanol has several end uses, such as coatings and inks for food and paper packaging, or emulsion resins for interior and

Molecular sieves generally serve the purpose of blocking large molecules from interacting by preventing them from entering a compound. On the other hand they permit the entry of smaller user friendly molecules. Most of molecular sieves are used as desiccants. The size of the molecules that are restricted and the ones that are permitted are

When some sort of chemical separation process or any purification process is going on, it is important to separate the similar looking molecules with almost similar polarity. The purification doesn’t complete until the solution is free from these impurities. Under this circumstance, you need to use such substances that have the quality to absorb those

Molecular sieves are synthetically produced desiccants with small holes to block large molecules. They are usually used as absorbents of gases or liquids. They are quicker in absorbing water than silica gel. The sieves may be microporous, macroporous and mesoporous. They provide protection against moisture and water. These desiccant molecular sieves are available in beads

Molecular sieves are synthetically manufactured crystalline, porous structures. They absorb moisture and water from substances to dry the substances completely. The most common component used in these sieves is zeolites. They offer protection against moisture and water. Moisture is the foe of many coatings, sealants, adhesives and elastomers. It can come from pigments, fillers or
