Zeochem's new generation of molecular sieves, Z4-04 and Z3-06, represent a step change performance improvement
Zeochem's new generation of molecular sieves, Z4-04 and Z3-06, represent a step change performance improvement in natural gas dehydration. Newly developed materials and manufacturing techniques provide products with unsurpassed resistance to hydrothermal degradation and superior mechanical strength. These improvements translate into longer cycle times, increased life in the field, reduced energy consumption, and longer service life.
1) Extraordinary Hydrothermal Stability
Zeochem's newly developed synthesis and bead manufacturing processes provide the most stable zeolite crystal available today. After exposure to extreme heat and humidity, Z4-04 and Z3-06 retain a greater adsorption capacity than any competitive product.
2) Low Pressure Drop
The spherical shape and smoothness of Zeochem molecular sieves provides for lower pressure drop than other adsorbent shapes, leading to lower compression energy costs. The exceptional mechanical properties result in less breakup and attrition, maintaining the lower pressure drop over the life of the product.
3) Superior Mechanical Strength and Integrity
Zeochem's newly developed bead forming techniques yield a product with superior mechanical properties including:
Improved Bed Crush Strength
Increased Attrition Resistance
Lower Dust Generation
Greater Thermal Stress Resistance
4) Increased Capacity per Unit Volume
The higher packing density of Zeochem sieves provide more adsorption capacity per cubic foot of packed bed than competitive products.
5) Excellent Mass Transfer Characteristics
High surface area per unit volume and an open macropore structure enhance mass transfer efficiency leading to shorter mass transfer zones and longer operating cycles.
