How to Regenerate Molecular Sieve Things to Know Before you Start: Regeneration should ONLY be performed in a well-ventilated area Do NOT regenerate the material at temperatures exceeding 800˚F as this can cause the material to be destroyed and may present a fire hazard, high temperatures can also damage the crystalline structure of the material, rendering it useless The best way to determine that the material is regenerated is by measuring a weight change – a before measurement will be needed; as water is released, the tray of silica gel will lose mass so the after weight will indicate the...

blue, color change, green, indicating, pink, product information, silica gel, yellow -

It TALKS? What do you mean it talks? Yeah well - kind of... There are two types of silica gel that either fit this description or not. Indicating silica gel starts out as one color such as deep cobalt blue or yellow. When the product begins to adsorb moisture, Blue, for example will turn pink and yellow silica gel will turn green. This lets you know it's time to replace or regenerate the product.

activated alumina, product information -

The Activated Alumina refining process is old. Also named "Aluminum Oxide" The craft dates back to the 1880s when the Bayer company developed it for the aluminum industry. They crush up "Bauxite" (a raw material mined from the Earth) and mix it with sodium hydroxide. It's then seeded with crystals to generate aluminum hydroxide. The hydroxide is then heated in a kiln to remove any water leaving several versions of granular, powdered alumina that includes smelter-grade alumina, activated alumina, and calcined alumina. Typically, "Activated Alumina" can be in granular form or a uniform "beaded" (shown above) substance that is porous...

how to, molecular sieve, oxygen generation -

The purpose of the document is to provide suggestions for how someone might refill the sieve beads in the molecular sieve cartridges for an oxygen concentrator. It is recommended that only qualified operators perform this task. This document is only provided for reference purposes to help increase knowledge and reduce problems or issues for someone who might be attempting to refill their own sieve beads.
