3A EDG Molecular Sieve Ethanol Grade
CHEMICAL FORMULA K12 [(Al02)12(SiO2)12] · nH2O
DelSORB®EDG molecular sieve is specifically designed for drying fuel grade ethanol. Ethanol can only be dried to the azeotropic point of 95.6% purity by traditional distillation. DelSORB® EDG selectively adsorbs the water from the solution to produce anhydrous ethanol with less than 1% water. This is the drying method of choice for fuel ethanol producers.

HANDLING & STORAGE RECOMMENDATIONS
Store DelSORB® molecular sieve in a dry location to prevent premature 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.
