Molecular sieve adsorption
Vogelbusch USA pioneered the use of molecular sieve systems in the ethanol industry by applying a pressure swing adsorption (PSA) process for ethanol dehydration.
Dehydration is used to obtain anhydrous ethanol as needed for the use as bioethanol (with a water content of max. 0.5%) or super dry ethanol for pharmaceutical or industrial applications (with 0.01% or less).
Vogelbusch offers state-of-the-art designs that are easy to operate, reliable, energy efficient, and low on maintenance. Design options include
For ease of installation, and reduced field erection time and costs, Vogelbusch can supply prefabricated molecular sieve units. They are compact to ship and easily reassembled on site.
