  • ⚛️  Description: This is a 4 angstrom pore opening molecular sieve filter used to filter large diameter molecules. Adsorbed components, see here. Molecular sieves are often used instead of desiccants or activated carbon. For example, they are used in the filtration of air supplies for breathing apparatus, for example those used by scuba divers and firefighters. In such applications, air is supplied by an air compressor and is passed through a cartridge filter which, depending on the application, is filled with molecular sieve and/or activated carbon, finally being used to charge breathing air tanks. Such filtration can remove particulates and compressor exhaust products from the breathing air supply.
  • 📶  How does it work? Molecular sieves are crystalline metal aluminosilicates having a three dimensional interconnecting network of silica and alumina tetrahedra. The material has uniform pores. These pore diameters are similar in size to small molecules, and thus large molecules cannot enter or be adsorbed, while smaller molecules can. Adsorbed species include SO2, CO2, H2S, C2H4, C2H6, and C3H6
  • 👫  Instructions: Connect the filter in line with the air supply tubing. The filter is bi-directional so it does not matter which way it is connected. One end is the input the other is the output which is directed to the sensor.
