General description

Molecular Sieve, Type 3A is a synthetic crystalline aluminosilicate (potassium form crystal structure or type A zeolite) with an effective pore diameter of 3 Å. It is used as an effective adsorbent. It adsorbs molecules having a kinetic diameter of less than 3 Å and excludes molecules with a kinetic diameter of greater than 3 Å.

Application

Molecular Sieve, Type 3A can be used:
  • As a selective adsorbent for the adsorption of water and ammonia.
  • In drying polar liquids such as methanol and ethanol.
  • In commercial dehydration of unsaturated hydrocarbon streams, including cracked gas, propylene, butene, and natural gas.
