Description

Molecular Sieve, also known as mol sieve or zeolite is made of crystalline aluminosilicate with SiO2: AI202 in the ratio of 2:1. These Molecular Sieves comes in various types due to its different sizes of pore openings, formed from the extensive cross-linking between AIO4 and SiO4.

We manufacture our Molecular Sieve in mainly 4 different types, providing you with high mechanical strength, absorption capacity as well as low attrition loss.

  • 3A Molecular Sieve
  • 4A Molecular Sieve
  • 5A Molecular Sieve
  • 13X Molecular Sieve

Our Molecular Sieves are also available in different forms such as spheres, pellets and powders to meet the needs of various industries and applications.

How does Molecular Sieve work?

The small opening pores of the Molecular Sieve allows the separation of specific molecules by absorbing those with a smaller diameter to that of the pore openings and excluding the rest. Hence, enabling the Molecular Sieve to dehydrate, purify and separate selective gas & liquid substances.

Capable of absorbing up to 22% of its weight, the Molecular Sieve can be found commonly used in the filtration system or as desiccant sachets to reduce humidity levels. They can also operate at a high temperature of up to 300°C, making it suitable for machinery applications.

Molecular Sieves can also be regenerated at high temperature when exposed to moisture over a long period. To allow regeneration to take place, simply heat the Molecular Sieve to an optimal temperature of 130°C – 250°C. However, the exact temperature varies from each type of Molecular Sieve.”
