Zeolite Molecular Sieve 3a 4a 5a 13x For Desiccant, Dryer And Removing CO2 In Chemical
Molecular Sieves which have divided into several types of 3A, 4A, 5A, 13X, Insulating Glass Molecular Sieve, CMS etc.
1) Drying of unsaturated hydrocarbons (e.g. ethylene, propylene, butadiene)
2) Cracked Gas Drying
3) Drying of natural gas, if COS minimization is essential, or a minimum co-adsorption of hydrocarbons is required.
4) Drying of highly polar compounds, such as methanol and ethanol
5) Drying of liquid alcohol
6) Static, (non-regenerative) dehydration of insulating glass units, whether air-filled or gas-filled.
7) Drying of refrigerants

Molecular sieve Type 3A can be regenerated by either heating in the case of thermal swing processes; or by lowering the pressure in the case of pressure swing processes.
To remove moisture from a 3A molecular sieve, a temperature of 200-230°C is required. A properly regenerated molecular sieve can give moisture dew points below -100°C.
The outlet concentrations on a pressure swing process will depend on the gas present, and on the conditions of the process.
To avoid damp and pre-adsorption of organic before running, or just to be reactivated.
