The role of activated alumina ball desiccant

Did you think of activated alumina balls when you saw the activated alumina ball desiccant? How are they related? And what is the purpose of activated alumina ball desiccant?

1. Introduction of activated alumina ball desiccant

Activated alumina desiccant is a spherical activated alumina made by a special process. Under certain operating conditions and regeneration conditions, its drying depth is as high as below the dew point temperature -70°C. It is an efficient desiccant for deep drying of trace water. Activated alumina desiccant is mainly used for drying liquids and gases. The product is non-toxic, tasteless, odorless, insoluble in water and organic solvents.

2. Product appearance of activated alumina ball desiccant

Activated alumina ball desiccant has a white spherical appearance, uniform particle size, smooth surface, porosity, large specific surface area, high strength, strong hygroscopicity, does not swell or crack after absorbing water, and maintains its original state, good thermal stability, non-toxic and odorless , Non-powdering, insoluble in water characteristics. Spherical particles with many capillary pores have a strong ability to adsorb water for substances with strong molecular polarity such as water.

3. The use of activated alumina ball desiccant

Activated alumina desiccant is widely used in gas-phase drying and liquid-phase drying in petrochemical industry, used in textile industry, oxygen production industry, automatic instrument wind drying, pressure swing adsorption in air separation industry, etc. Because the single molecule adsorption layer of activated alumina desiccant has a high net heat, it is very suitable for heatless regeneration devices. Under certain operating conditions and regeneration conditions, it can also be used as a high-efficiency desiccant for deep drying with water.

4. Structural performance of activated alumina ball desiccant

Activated alumina balls have the characteristics of large adsorption capacity, large specific surface area, high strength, good thermal stability, etc. The structure of activated alumina, spherical particles with many capillary channels, is highly polar to water and other molecules. It has a strong affinity, is a non-toxic, non-corrosive effective desiccant, and its static capacity is high. It is used as adsorbent, desiccant, catalyst and carrier in many reaction processes such as petroleum, fertilizer and chemical industry.

Size selection and function of inert ceramic ball

The size of the inert ceramic ball should be selected according to the size of the catalyst. Generally, it follows the 2X rule (or gradation), that is, the diameter of the ceramic ball should be twice the diameter of its adjacent catalyst so that the distribution of materials is the most uniform and the pressure
