Sorbead R
High performance adsorbent

BASF Sorbead R is a high performance adsorbent for dehydration of air, industrial gases and liquids.
The BASF Sorbead line of highly efficient adsorbents is an alumino- silicate gel formed into hard, spherical beads 每 having a high resistance to crushing and a low attrition rate. Sorbead adsorbents have a longer life than most other adsorbents and can reduce operating costs in most applications.

Sorbead R is an adsorbent with a wide range of applications and its high level of economy and reliability is derived from a combination of unique properties.
Examples of economic benefits include high drying capacity and low desorption energy.
BASF Sorbead R is mainly used for the dynamic drying of compressed air, natural gas, technical gases (e.g. N2, O2 and CO2) and liquefied gases.
