3A Molecular Sieve 4x8 Mesh, Beaded
CHEMICAL FORMULA K12 [(Al02)12(SiO2)12] · nH2O
DelSORB® 3A48B molecular sieve is a multiple purpose, highly porous, high capacity alkali metal alumino-silicate in the spherical form. It is the potassium form of the Type A crystal structure with pore diameters of approximately 3Å. The 3Å pore opening will allow moisture to be adsorbed but will exclude unsaturated hydrocarbons and highly polar alcohols such as methanol and ethanol. It has high mass transfer efficiency and durability.

Drying of highly polar alcohols such as, ethanol and methanol, drying of unsaturated hydrocarbons (ethylene, propylene, butadiene), static dehydration of gas or air filled insulated glass units, gas drying, and cracked gas drying.
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.
