mSORB™ 13X MOLECULAR SIEVE
13x molecular sieve

13X Molecular Sieve

Our 13X molecular sieve products are multipurpose, porous, high capacity alkali metal alumino-silicates in the spherical form. They are the sodium form of the Type X crystal structure with pore diameters of approximately 10Å. They can adsorb all molecules that can be adsorbed by 3A, 4A, and 5A molecular sieve. 13X molecular sieve can also adsorb molecules such as aromatics and branched-chain hydrocarbons, which have large critical diameters.

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS
  • Air dryer desiccant
  • Adsorption of aromatics
  • Adsorption of branched-chain hydrocarbons with large critical diameters
  • General gas drying
  • High purity gas drying applications
  • Removal of H2O and CO2 in air plant purification systems for air separation processes
  • Removal of H2O and CO2 from gas and air streams
  • Sweetening of natural gas and liquid hydrocarbon streams by removing H2S and mercaptans
  • Separation of N2 from O2
  • PSA oxygen units
  • PSA oxygen generation systems

STORAGE

Store 13X molecular sieve in a dry location to prevent premature water adsorption. Reseal packages after opening to prevent contamination and unintended water adsorption. We recommend that you rotate stock so oldest material is used first.
