A Carbon Molecular Sieve is the porous carbon skeletal framework that remains after pyrolysis of a polymeric precursor. It is mainstream adsorbent for Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) system Nitrogen gas generator. This is often utilized in the petroleum industry, especially for drying gas streams. In the laboratory, molecular sieve is used to dry solvent. This is also used in large scale industrial processes, including hydrocracking and fluid catalytic cracking. Generally, Carbon Molecular Sieve offers greater relative adsorptive strength compared to spherical graphitized polymer carbon (SGPC) and graphitized carbon black (GCB) adsorbents.
