Molecular Sieve Overview
Molecular sieve is moisture adsorbent with high strength, heat resistance and various shapes and sizes to answer numerous applications. It is also known as synthetic zeolite.
We are expanding many new applications in drying, refining and separation processes in industries such as oil refining and petrochemical. Resonac group (formerly Showa Denko) has been manufacturing and selling molecular sieves for more than 50 years, and providing excellent products to a wide range of industries.
Based on our own technology, we do provide proposal and consultation about the selection of adsorbents, the most suitable grade. Also, we could give suggestion regarding the design of adsorption facilities.
Refrigerator and Air Conditioner
- Drying of refrigerant
- Double glazing window (air drying)
- Dehumidifier (air drying)
- Curtains and carpets (materials deodorization)
- Molecular sieve for PSA O2/Oxygen generator (separation of N2 / O2 in air). PSA type cycle for high purity Oxygen.

USKK Adsorbent Shape and Size
|Diameter = 4×8, 8×12, etc *
*4×8 = 4 ～ 8Mesh
（Mesh; ASTM Standard）
|Diameter = 1.6 or 3.2mm
(1/16 or 1/8inch)
|Diameter = 3.2 or 6.4mm
(1/8 or 1/4 inch)
|Mean particle size: 10μm or less|
Often used for small devices, such as automotive parts.
Often used in petroleum refining and chemical industry plants.
|Cloverleaf cross section
Often used in chemical plants. Excellent in balance between dynamic adsorption capability and pressure drop.
Often added to resins to dry resins or provide additional characteristics (e.g., to produce hygroscopic packing materials.)
