Molecular sieve is commonly used to generate oxygen streams by adsorbing nitrogen (N2). Once separated, the oxygen can be used in various refining processes and other tasks that require high purity oxygen streams.
SPECIALIZED MOLECULAR SIEVE
Our unique manufacturing process yields strong, efficient beads, while keeping dust to a minimum. To better serve the market, we offer both small size and large beads sufficient for an array of production requirements.
Molecular sieve is used to produce oxygen for use in or out of the home. Atmospheric air enters a compressor, passes through the surge tank, then through sieve beds, where nitrogen is removed. Oxygen is then pumped into the product tank, and the sieve bed is regenerated to allow the process to be repeated. The small size of these units require small beads to allow sufficient oxygen production, while remaining light enough for the user to carry.
Large Scale Oxygen Production
Molecular sieve is also used in large scale oxygen production. A compressor intakes air, which passes through an air separation unit, where oxygen is separated. Once separated, oxygen can be liquefied and stored or transferred to another location for use in refinery processes.
