I’m definitely not trying to argue, but am trying to understand why they are advertising the following excerpt?
“Water Molecules, which have a Molecular Diameter of About 2.8 Angstroms in Diameter. While Water can Fit Inside of the Molecular Sieve Crystal, Hydrocarbon Chains such as Ethanol (approx. 3.6 Angstroms) Won’t be Adsorbed by the Molecular Sieve due to their Larger Molecular Diameters, which Prevents the Hydrocarbons from Being Able to Fit Through the Pore Opening of the 3A Zeolite Crystal.”
(from link titled, ‘this’ in earlier reply)
I have to admit they aren’t advertising the Equilibrium Ethylene Capacity as covered in the link provided by @coppertop, which I’m assuming is the value @Shadownaught is referring to concerning etoh bypassing the beads?
I was thinking the more expensive, nearly twice the cost by weight, 3A appeared to be specially designed for drying ethanol?
I might break down and do the whole thing using just 190, but would love to do it following the recipe to the T.
