STANDARD 5A MOLECULAR SIEVE

Description

Standard 5A molecular sieve is manufactured for use in air prepurification units to remove water, carbon dioxide, and hydrocarbons from feed gas. The removal of these contaminants is essential for compressed air systems and for purifying gas streams. This molecular sieve offers a high adsorption capacity for impurities, especially water.

  • used to purify air feed gas
  • capable of removing water, carbon dioxide, and light hydrocarbons
  • allows gas to be further separated or otherwise used in compressors
  • offers an advantageous adsorption capacity for water
