Product Application

This molecular sieve can be applied in PSA or VSA dehydration units and is used to remove water from ethanol streams. EthaDry has been specifically designed for Ethanol Dehydration Units and differs from standard molecular sieves. With a high crush strength to withstand the heat and pressure of the dehydration unit, the design of EthaDry beads maintain a low bulk density, while offering a high working capacity. EthaDry has a superior selectivity between water and ethanol molecules, which increases both efficiency and dehydration capacity each cycle. Once ethanol has been dehydrated, it is about 99.99% pure and can then be applied in biofuels for direct blending and ETBE production, or for other uses such as in chemicals, food industry, pharmaceuticals, and more.
