3A Molecular Sieves Popular for Industrial Applications

Molecular Sieve

Several industrial applications demand for 3A molecular sieves especially for drying and separating different liquids and gases. Industrial liquids and gases and also some machinery are sensitive to moisture, so to prevent the adverse effects of water 3A molecular sieves are induced. The sieves also help industrial products to extend their shelf life. 

Most of the industries require 100% water-free Ethanol. The finally manufactured alcohol is a rectified spirit with almost 94.6% alcohol and the remaining percentage is water. It is very difficult to remove the amount of water in alcohol using any straightforward and simple distillation process.

Therefore, a special 3 angstrom molecular sieves dehydration process needs to be carried out using latest technology to manufacture the absolute alcohol.

In the case of ethanol, water is extracted by making it dehydrated with the help of adsorbent structure of molecular sieve 3A. The potassium-based molecular sieve pore size of 3a is 3A0 or 3 Angstrom, it cannot adsorb all molecules which having the pore size is large then 3A.

3A molecular sieve can be available in beads, pellets and powder form.

  • It is simple and easy to automate the process, thus reduces labor and training costs.
  • This dehydration process is easy to handle as not a single type of chemical is used in it. The workers can easily keep them away from any kind of endangered as it does not hold any material handling or liability issues.
  • In addition to ethanol, a well-designed and manufactured sieve is not only used to dehydrate the ethanol hydrated vapors but is highly useful for dehydrating other types of chemicals too. Thus, gives a facility to use this system in future operations as well.
