13X Molecular Sieve Mesh, Beaded

CHEMICAL FORMULA Na86[(AlO2)86(SiO2)106] • nH2O

mSORB 13X molecular sieve is a multiple purpose, highly porous, high capacity alkali metal alumino-silicate in the spherical form. It is the sodium form of the Type X crystal structure with pore diameters of approximately 10Å. It can adsorb all molecules that can be adsorbed by 3A, 4A, and 5A molecular sieve. Type 13X molecular sieve can also adsorb molecules such as aromatics and branched-chain hydrocarbons, which have large critical diameters.

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS General gas drying; concurrent removal of H2O and CO2 from gas and air streams; sweeten natural gas and liquid hydrocarbon streams by removing H2S and mercaptans; separation of N2 from O2; PSA oxygen units.

PACKAGING INFORMATION Available in 308 lb (140 kg) drums and super-sacks filled to order specification.

HANDLING & STORAGE RECOMMENDATIONS Store in a dry location to prevent unintentional water adsorption. Reseal packages after opening to prevent contamination and unintended water adsorption. We recommend that you rotate stock so oldest material is used first.
