Olefin Dehydration

Ethylene and propylene producers have faced the challenge of contaminants for decades. Adsorbents, both molecular sieve and alumina based, have been successfully used to help olefin producers manage their operations as contaminated feeds and increasingly sensitive polymerization catalysts continue to offer them increasing challenges. The most widely used adsorbents are the 3A based molecular sieve products utilized to remove water from the cracked gas, liquids, ethylene-ethane and hydrogen


GSorb-330 is  a potassium type zeolite adsorbent, 3A, available in different shapes. GSorb-330 has an effective pore opening of about 3 angstroms (0.3 nm).It adsorbs molecules with effective  diameters smaller than approximately 3 angstroms, but excludes molecules such as unsaturated hydrocarbons
