Zeolite Beads CO2 removal expert

Beads are widely utilized in the liquid and gas industries. They specialized in drying for water, and oxygen molecules, and the removal of CO2 and excess oxygen liquids and gases. Zeolite beads consist of millions of small pores which allow them to immensely adsorb all the contaminants and excess heat from industrial liquids and gases.

PSA is a technology that stands for Pressure Swing Adsorption. This technology is made to separate some of the unique gas from the mixture of various gases or air under pressure. This happens because of the gas molecules' characteristics and the affinity it shows for the adsorbent material.

Molecular sieves or zeolites are a kind of material that is made for absorption. Its specialty is that it can absorb a high amount of moisture. And it can also absorb some special gas. The zeolite absorbs certain gases that get mixed in the mixture. Hence, it is also called the Separation of a mixture.

Zeolite contains tiny pores that are of uniform size. These tiny pores act as adsorbents site for different gas and liquids. The molecular sieve is available in different types, for example, 3A, 4A, 5A, and 13X. This is all used in PSA plants.

Let's Learn How PSA Plant Works

The process

This process of Pressure Swing Adsorption is based on the physics law that any gas

 under high pressure will likely attract to the nearby solid surface. This process is called adsorption.

These plants require two vessels that are filled with molecular sieves. First clean compressed air at the temperature of 30 degrees Celsius is passed through one vessel, and the oxygen molecules come out from the vessel as product gas. The second vessel is depressurized to match the atmospheric pressure. It is then purged with a little oxygen molecule coming out from the first vessel.
