Molecular sieves are widely used as a desiccant agent to absorb the water, moisture and humidity from liquids, oils and gases. They are also used as catalysts to remove the nitrogen from oxygen to obtain the pure oxygen. Such type of refinement task for oxygen purification is performed using the advanced PSA(Pressure Swing Adsorption) technology. 13X molecular sieve in the form of beads and pellets provides a great way in purifying the oxygen with the help of PSA oxygen generation process. Such type of product to get high level of pure oxygen to enhance the performance of healthcare operations is known as oxygen generator.
How PSA Process works in Oxygen Purification?This adsorption process to generate pure oxygen is more competitive and cost-effective as compared to other cryogenic process that produces small amount of oxygen. In this process, molecules of components like nitrogen, carbon dioxide and water are adsorbed effectively by passing an ambient air through column of molecular sieves and let oxygen and other molecules to pass through. It ensures to produce oxygen with purity level reached to 94% – 95%. Molecular sieve 13X provides the best adsorption solution to the healthcare industry in supplyingclean and unpolluted oxygen to the patients.
An air compressor is used to condense the ambient air. This air is dried and filtered with the help of air dryer before entering into the PSA process vessels. After this, the main adsorption process of producing the oxygen starts. This process removes the impurities and other unwanted gases like nitrogen, carbon dioxide and argon. The ambient air is passed through a vessel containing molecular sieve in the sodium form with type X crystal structure. Such type of desiccants absorbs the unwanted gases and passes most of the oxygen. This process continues till molecular sieves are fully exhausted with the high percentage of pure oxygen. The main purpose of PSA is to produce maximum pure oxygen that can be used by people for better breathe.
Sorbead India has years of experience in manufacturing the molecular sieves in the beads and pellets form to design high performance oxygen generator with Type A and Type X crystal structure molecules. We offer highly efficient, completely safe, low pressure and high output pressure desiccants which are perfect for PSA oxygen purification.
