Molecular Sieve 5A is an alkali alumino silicate.It is the calcium form of the A type structure and has an effective pore opening of 5 Angstrom (0.48nm).

Molecular Sieve 5A Applications :

  • The strong ionic forces of the divalent calcium ion makes it an excellent adsorbent to remove water, CO2, H2S from sour natural gas streams, while minimising COS formation. Light mercaptans are as well adsorbed.
  • It is also used for the separation of normal- and iso paraffins.

Production of high purity N2, O2, H2 and inert gases from mixed gas streams.
