MOLECULAR SIEVE TYPE 5A

5A Molecular Sieve is a calcium form of aluminosilicate. The Molecular Sieve will adsorb
mocecules which have a critical diameter less than five angstroms (CH3OH , C2H5OH & Propane).
Molecular Sieve 5A is cation exchanged calcium form of A type crystal structure. The calcium ion exchange in "A" crystal
effectively increases the Molecular Sieve pore size to 5 angstroms, and it enables selective adsorption depending upon molecular size of adsorbate.
Molecular Sieve 5A adsorbs n-paraffin irrespective of chain length and not the branched chain hydrocarbon. Hence it is
used for specific applications like, seperation of normal from branched chain paraffin. Our Molecular Sieve being
spherical in shape produces uniform packing and adsorbate diffusion in the adsorber, also exibits high resistance to
attrition and physical damage during service.

GENERAL CHARACTERISTICS

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS
Hydrocarbon Seperation (straight chain n-paraffins from iso-paraffins and cyclic compound -both in gas &
     liquid phase)
Inert Gas Drying and Purification (removal of CO2 with simultaneous drying)
Recycle Gas Sweetening (removal of H2S)
Pretreatement of Natural Gas-Liquification (removal of H2O,CO2, H2S & mercaptans)
Supplement Animal Feed
