mSORB® RG-7 / mSORB® RG-9 / mSORB® RG-11

Refrigerant Desiccant

 mSORB® RG refrigerant desiccants provide excellent water capacity, high physical strength, and high attrition resistance when activated or hydrated allowing for use in high vibration applications such as mobile air conditioning.

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS

mSORB® RG refrigerant desiccants are specifically formulated to be used as desiccants for stationary and mobile air conditioning and refrigeration systems in the commercial, automotive, and appliance industries.

REFRIGERATION COMPATIBILITY

This information can be used to determine the recommended desiccant for a refrigerant blend. The desiccant of choice will be that which is compatible with all components of the blend.

1mSORB® RG-9 can be used to dry HFC-32, although it does adsorb HFC-32 concurrently.

2The use of mSORB® RG-9 with HFC-152a should be carefully evaluated; however, we believe that there is not a great risk of incompatibility.

IMPORTANT

mSORB® RG® molecular sieves are formulated to be compatible with the refrigerants and lubricants that they are intended to operate with and will prevent chemical reactions that could produce system failures. 

STORAGE

Store refrigerant desiccant 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.
