STANDARD 3A – MOLECULAR SIEVE
Standard 3A Molecular Sieve is most commonly used for dehydration and can be applied in both PSA and TSA units to remove H2O. It has a quick mass transfer rate, high mechanical strength, low attrition, and can minimize byproduct formation. Standard 3A is a versatile molecular sieve that has a wide range of applications including those in natural gas and petroleum gas dehydration, refrigerant drying, and for use in insulated glass.
