Molecular sieve is a crystalline metal aluminosilicate that is excessively utilized in petroleum companies, for producing purified gases. Molecular sieves have a three-dimensional interconnecting network of alumina and silica tetrahedral and are known as zeolite. They act as desiccants and adsorbents that are used in chemical laboratories for drying or absorbing liquids and gases.
Having a tendency to divide the substances on a molecular stage, zeolite is same as a sieve that is used for segregating the sand from the rocks.
Let’s take an example of acetone that has the radius of 0.308 nm with water molecules of radius 0.193 nm in it. On adding acetone into molecular sieve, a stimulation is caused on the minor water molecules that forces the water molecules to pass over the filter while leaving behind the bigger molecules of acetone on it.
Molecular sieves can also be used for filtering molecules having the same size. For such molecular structures, the sieve filters the molecules based on their polarity. Professionals looking for molecular sieves can contact Bee Chems for their requirements.
A renowned supplier of chemical products, Bee Chems is known in the industry for providing best-in-class molecular sieves. The molecular sieve they provide is MolCat, that is used for various commercial purposes like dehydration of unsaturated hydrocarbon streams, static dehydration in closed liquid or gas systems, removal of H2S, CO2 and mercaptans from natural gas, separation of normal paraffin from branch-chain and cyclic hydrocarbons and many others.
Available in beads and extruded pallets, the common size of molecular sieve is 2-5 mm that can be altered depending on the requirements of the customers.
Individuals can get MolCat packed in 125-150 kg drums, 20 Kg. cartons and jumbo bags at the most competitive prices from this reputed company.
In addition to molecular sieves, Bee Chems also offers silica and alumina products like colloidal silica, nano silica binders, lithium products, alumina sols, acid resistant mortars, sodium silicates and many others.BACK TO BLOG
