Molecular sieves: The largest segment of adsorbent market

Molecular sieves are adsorbent that have very small pores of precise and uniform size. These pores are small enough to block large molecules, while allowing small molecules to pass. Many molecular sieves are used as desiccants. Molecular sieves are the largest materials type of adsorbent. These are used in petrochemicals and air separation and drying applications. Adsorbent is widely used in the petrochemicals industry to remove trace contaminants such as water and sulfur in the feed, intermediate, and product streams. Molecular sieves are used in non-cryogenic oxygen production plants, to adsorb nitrogen from air, producing high purity oxygen. These molecular sieve has the property of desiccant as well which performs like an adsorbent only. Hence, this property of desiccant is also leading to the growth of molecular sieve in the adsorbent market.

Petroleum refining: The largest application of adsorbent market

Petroleum refining industry is worldwide the largest consumer of adsorbent. Petroleum refining adsorbent are widely used in dehydration of alkylation feed and in purification of feedstock to protect isomerization catalysts in refining. These absorbents remove a wide variety of contaminants effectively and economically from numerous hydrocarbon streams in petroleum refineries through non-regenerative and regenerative adsorbent. Since petroleum refining adsorbent encompass large number of properties for this application, such as high adsorption capacity and a long and effective adsorbent service life, these adsorbent are able to attain ultra-low contaminant specification and can minimize the side reactions and coke depositions.
