13X Molecular Sieve
Amazing effects – Unique performance
We offer the widest portfolio of 13X Molecular sieve family including standard 13X, 13X-HP, 13X-LPG, 13X-APG/APGII/APGIII and 13X-OXY & LXP for sweetening and purification applications.
13X Molecular Sieve is a synthetic crystalline aluminosilicate with a regular micropore structure. It’s the sodium form of the type X crystal and has a much larger pore opening than the type A crystal. It will adsorb molecules with a kinetic diameter of less than 9 Angstrom (0.9 nm) and exclude those larger. It also has the highest theoretical capacity of the common adsorbents and very good mass transfer rates. It can remove impurities too large to fit into a type A crystal and is commonly used to separate nitrogen from oxygen.
Petrotat 13X Molecular Sieve is a highly selective adsorbent designed for the elimination of trace contaminants from air and other gases. It can also be used for the desulphurization (sweetening) of natural gas and other fluids, especially for the removal of mercaptans, and for drying of gases and liquids.
Another field of application for our 13X is the non-cryogenic oxygen enrichment from air using pressure (vacuum) swing adsorption (PSA/VPSA) technique. It can be used as regenerative thermo-chemical energy storage for the generation of cold or heat, possibly using environmentally sound primary energy sources (sun energy, exhaust heat etc.).
