Type 13X Molecular Sieve

Na86[(AlO2)86(SiO2)106] · X H2O--Molecular Sieve Type 13X, the sodium form of the Type X crystal structure, is an alkali metal alumino-silicate. Available in powder, pellets and beads. Used commercially for general gas drying; air plant feed purification (simultaneous removal of H2O and CO2 ); and liquid hydrocarbon and natural gas sweetening (H2S and mercaptan removal). The 13X can adsorb both the moisture and polymerization by-products such as acetaldehyde and ethylene glycol. It's exceptional product strength makes it ideal for sachet and other custom packaged desicatting needs.
