13X Molecular Sieve


13X Molecular Sieve

Molecular sieve 13X, also called zeolite 13X or zeolith 13X, is one type of aluminosilicate crystal with average pores measuring of 9 angstrom (0.9 nm). Molecular with kinetic diameter smaller than 9 angstrom will be adsorbed by zeolite 13X, otherwise be excluded.
Zeolite 13X molecular sieves are typically used for removal of carbon dioxide and moisture from air, mercaptan and hydrogen sulphide from hydrocarbons such as LPG, butane, propane, etc.

Major Applications

Cryogenic Air Separation

Cryogenic air separation plays a key role in producing oxygen, nitrogen, and argon by separating contaminants such as carbon dioxide and water from a gas stream.

Our rapid absorption solution can satisfy the wide needs of air separation across numerous industrial production.

Air Drying

As a process, air drying takes away the moisture from the air, keeping the machinery and equipment running uninterrupted.

This is an energy-efficient and cost-effective method of maintaining moisture levels within the area, which can help reduce production and maintenance costs.

Zeolite 13X Molecular Sieve Storage and Regeneration

  • Storage

    The product should be stored in original pack or air-proof package in cool and dry conditions should not be left exposed to open air.

  • Regeneration

    Molecular sieve 13X can be regenerated by increasing temperature or reducing the pressure.
