Adsorbents trap and remove contaminants from liquids and gases. Put very simply, these are drying agents used to render an industrial environment free of contaminants.
It is important to select the correct desiccant or adsorbent for a particular purpose or environment. Please call our staff to assist you in identifying the right product for your requirement.
Activated Carbon RB3
Activated carbons are used for adsorption of oil and oil vapour in compressed air used in the food processing industry. They are also used for removal of other pollutants in compressed air.
Molecular Sieve MS 512
Absorbent for the drying and purification of gases and liquids. Molecular Sieve MS 512 is a highly porous, crystalline alumino silicate in beaded form. The pore openings in the crystals have a diameter of approximately 4mm. Molecular Sieve is a product for the dynamic drying of most gases and vapours. It can also be used to remove other impurities with effective molecular diameters smaller than 4mm. Typical applications are drying / purification of natural gases, reformer gas and air.
Pure silica, when prepared under accurately controlled conditions, can exist in a highly porous state. In this condition it is known as ‘silica gel’ and because of its sponge-like structure and very large surface area it has great powers of adsorption. The adsorptive action of silica gel is purely physical for the material is chemically inert. There is no change in the size or shape of the particles as the gel becomes saturated and no corrosive or injurious compounds are formed.
G300 Spherical Activated Alumina
G300 is a smooth sphere of activated alumina. G300 is an excellent desiccant for drying a wide variety of liquids and gasses. Although all molecules are adsorbed to some extent on G300 spherical activated alumina, those molecules having the highest polarity are preferentially adsorbed. Extreme conditions such pressure; concentration and molecular weight of the molecules, temperature, and site competing molecules affect the efficiency of adsorption.
