Our Molecular Sieve Beads 10A are used as static beds in gas and liquid process streams to selectively sequester impurities smaller than 1 nanometer (10Å = 1nm). The beads’ active sites are functionally polar in character which attracts entrained molecules by their dipole moments, capturing the most polarized within the aluminosilicate structure.
Featuring a size range of 1.7–2.4mm in diameter, Molecular Sieve Beads 10A are compressed and thermally hardened spherical pellets of Type 13X zeolite with sodium cations and a buffered alkaline pH of 10.3. Molecules enter the crystalline lattice through pores measuring 10 angstroms (Å), accessing a vast internal network of ionically polarized adsorption sites.
