JLOX-100 series high-efficiency oxygen generation molecular sieve is a lithium X-type aluminosilicate crystal, which is an oxygen generation molecular sieve with international advanced level. Widely used in: iron and steel, non-ferrous metallurgy, chemical industry, furnace energy-saving transformation, environmental protection, papermaking, aquaculture, medical care and other industries.
The PSA oxygen generator uses zeolite molecular sieve as the adsorbent, and uses the principle of pressure adsorption and decompression desorption to adsorb and release oxygen from the air, thereby separating oxygen. The separation effect of zeolite molecular sieve on O2 and N2 is based on the small difference in the dynamic diameter of the two gases. N2 molecules have a faster diffusion rate in the micropores of zeolite molecular sieve, and O2 molecules have a slower diffusion rate. With the continuous acceleration of the industrialization process, the market demand for PSA oxygen generators continues to increase, and this equipment plays an important role in the industrial industry.

The JLOX-501 product is a molecular sieve dedicated to PSA medical (household) oxygen generators and micro oxygen generators.
Many industrial manufacturers of PSA oxygen production at home and abroad buy our JLOX-500 series products.
Pressure swing adsorption oxygen production equipment (also known as PSA oxygen production equipment) uses PSA special molecular sieve to selectively adsorb impurities such as nitrogen, carbon dioxide and water in the air under normal temperature and pressure conditions to obtain higher purity oxygen (93 %±2).
Household oxygen generators use molecular sieve physical adsorption and desorption technology. The oxygen generator is filled with molecular sieves, which can absorb nitrogen in the air when pressurized, and the remaining unabsorbed oxygen is collected and becomes high-purity oxygen after purification. The molecular sieve discharges the adsorbed nitrogen back into the ambient air when it is decompressed, and can adsorb nitrogen and produce oxygen during the next pressurization. The whole process is a periodic dynamic cycle process, and the molecular sieve is not consumed.

Jalon Molecular Sieve’s Outstanding Performance in Food Grade CO2 Purification Project
Recently, Jalon received a letter of thanks titled ‘Jalon Molecular Sieve’s Outstanding Performance in Food-Grade CO2 Purification Project’ from Sichuan Meifeng Meiser Gas Products Co., Ltd. (hereinafter Meiser Sichuan Gas)
In Nov. 2019, Meiser Sichuan Gas decided to apply the Jalon self-developed molecular sieve to their food-grade CO2 purification project, and this project started on 5th Dec. 2019.
Through 2 years of operation and test, Jalon Molecular Sieve’s performance and stability both well meet project requirements, and further guarantee the facilities’ operation. Helping our client to design, test then apply our customized molecular sieves to their facilities is what Jalon has been offering and this case is only one among many successful cooperations.
Jalon R&D center was established since the company foundation in 2002. At first, the R&D center mainly supports synthetic zeolite powder and activated zeolite powder product development and quality control. In 2005, Jalon entered the molecular sieve industry and was preparing to upgrade the R&D team. Next year, “Luoyang Molecular Sieve Engineering Technology Research Center” was set by Jalon. Now the lab has been upgraded to “Molecular Sieve Adsorbent Engineering and Technology Research Center of Henan Province”. The R&D center has advanced equipment for synthetic zeolite powder and molecular sieve basic specification test, new product (including synthetic zeolite and molecular sieve) development, and evaluation. It is also open to the public for technical service. Jalon’s R&D center consists of several specialized consultants who used to be working in different fields for decades. Their experience in facility installation, operation, and equipment loading is quite helpful in customizing molecular sieve design. Only efficient communication combined with professional knowledge can smooth the cooperation and tighten our business bond.
The molecular sieve is a class of inorganic non-metallic porous crystalline materials with large specific surface area, regular pore structure, and tunable functional units, which can effectively separate and select molecules by different diameters, polarities, boiling points, and organic hydrocarbon molecules by different degree of saturation. It has the functions of ‘sieving molecules’ and ‘shape-selective catalysis’ which makes it a strategic emerging material that can realize energy saving and emission reduction, environmental governance, and ecological restoration. Its market application is increasingly diversified, and it has more possibilities and potential growth.
According to the information released by the International Molecular Sieve Association, there are 253 types of molecular sieve structures known in the world. Under the current technical conditions, only around 20 types of molecular sieve structures such as LTA type, FAU type, and MFI type can be produced on an industrial scale.
In the future, Jalon will continue having the main business focused on molecular sieve new materials. Based on the current entire industrial chain, R&D support, automatic production line, and other advantages to continue to deepen the implementation of the “Three-field strategy”, “Internationalization strategy” and “Production diverted from adsorption to catalyst strategy”. Optimizing Jalon’s product structure to achieve differentiated development. In the meantime, we will also do our best to ensure the service of diversified customer needs and support each other to achieve common development.
Jalon JLPM Series Applied to 80,000Nm³/h Cryogenic Air Separation Project
Recently, Jalon received a report titled ‘Performance Report of Jalon Molecular Sieve in Overseas 80,000Nm3/h Cryogenic Air Separation Project’ from a client of the cryogenic equipment industry in Hangzhou. This facility has been adjusted to reach the designed production capacity by the end of 2021. The Cryogenic air separation equipment and molecular sieve purification system are both operating well. Jalon molecular sieve perfectly meets the technical design and the requirements of the contract after evaluation.
The molecular sieve purification system is an essential part of cryogenic air separation equipment. The humidity, ethyne, CO2, and others in the air are removed or purified to guarantee the facility’s safety and stability.
The 80,000Nm3/h air separation project above is a breakthrough in the application for Jalon, meaning our capability reaches a new level.
In 2020, the JLPM series molecular sieve is applied to three 52,000 Nm3/h Cryogenic air separation projects of Baofeng Energy, two 45,000Nm3/h Cryogenic air separation projects of ChinaCoal, the new 30,000Nm3/h Cryogenic air separation project of Shandong Shiheng Special Steel Group Co., Ltd., the new 50,000Nm3/h air separation project of Shanxi Jincheng Steel Holding Group Co., Ltd., etc. Jalon’s JLPM series molecular sieves are applied to several over 50,000Nm3/h Cryogenic air separation projects of clients from Ningxia Province to replace the imported products.
A molecular sieve is a sensitive industrial consumable with a lifetime. Jalon’s business transferred from replacement market to newly built project. Technology barrier, fund, qualification and evaluation period are challenges that Jalon has to face during development. Each successful application and client’s approval are priceless treasures to us.
With the successful cases in replacement in both cryogenic air separation projects and PSA oxygen generator projects increasing, Jalon gradually stepped into the market of newly built projects at home and abroad. Jalon’s JLOX-300 series, JLPM series, and JLOX-100 series have been qualified and accepted to replace the equivalent imported products in cryogenic air separation and PSA oxygen generators. Jalon is now capable to compete with international factories with its wide product range and consistent quality.
