Type D-201 Activated Alumina

CAS No. Al2O3–1344-28-1
  Na2O–1313-59-3
  SiO2–7631-86-9
  Fe2O3–1309-37-1

Activated Alumina Type D-201 is an abrasion resistant desiccant that has excellent adsorption and desorption characteristics. It is recommended for use in dehydration systems where the desiccant is subject to harsh mechanical conditions, and is especially suitable for heatless (pressure swing) air dryers. The Type D-201 is a spherical activated alumina with high surface area, high adsorption capacity and excellent abrasion resistance.
