How To Regenerate Molecular Sieve?

- Jul 13, 2018 -

Recently, there are some feedback from our customers about how to regenerate Chemxin Molecular Sieve. After learning with our R&D department, we summarize following operational instructions for your reference.

Regeneration Molecular Sieve should be in typical cyclic systems constitutes removal of the adsorbate from the molecular sieve bed by heating and purging with a carrier gas. 

Sufficient heat must be applied to raise the temperature of the adsorbate, the adsorbent and the vessel to vaporize the liquid and offset the heat of wetting the molecular-sieve surface. The bed temperature is critical in regeneration. Bed temperatures in the 175-260℃ range are usually employed for type 3A. This lower range minimizes polymerization of olefins on the molecular sieve surfaces when such materials are present in the gas. Slow heat up is recommended since most olefinic materials will be removed at minimum temperatures, 4A, 5A and 13X sieves require temperatures in the 200-315℃ range.

After regeneration, a cooling period is necessary to reduce the molecular sieve temperature to within 15℃ of the temperature of the stream to be processed. 

For optimum regeneration, gas flow should be countercurrent to adsorption during the heat up cycle and concurrent (relative to the process stream) during cooling. 

Alternatively, small quantities of molecular sieves may be dried in the absence of a purge gas by oven heating followed by slow cooling in a closed system, such as a desiccator.
