Molecular Sieve 13X APG

Product name:Molecular Sieve 13X APG
Formula:Na2O . Al2O3 . 2.45SIO2 . 6.0H2O
SiO2 : Al2O3 ≈2.6-3.0

The 13X APG molecular sieve is a NaX type sieve, it has a larger molecular sieve than type A sieve. The 13X APG sieve’s adsorbing molecules are smaller than 10 angstroms in diameter, however, the displacement force is greater than that of molecules larger than 10 angstroms in diameter. Specifically created for the air cryo-separation sector, the 13X APG molecular sieve co-absorbs CO2 and H2O.
