mSORB® EDG – Ethanol Dehydration

Ethanol Dehydration Grade Molecular Sieve, mSORB 3A EDG, is specifically designed for the dehydration of fuel grade ethanol. Ethanol can only be dried to an azeotropic point of 95.6% purity by traditional distillation. After that point, mSORB EDG selectively adsorbs the water from the solution to produce anhydrous ethanol with less than 0.5% water. This is the drying method of choice for fuel ethanol producers.

Chemical Formula: K12[(AlO2)12(SiO2)12] · nH2O

Handling & Storage Recommendations

Store mSORB 3A EDG molecular sieve in a dry location to prevent premature water adsorption. Do not store super sacks outside; ultraviolet radiation and other adverse conditions will negatively impact its integrity and may eventually cause the bag to fail. Reseal packages after opening to prevent contamination and unintended water adsorption. We recommend that you rotate stock so the oldest material is used first.
