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
Indicating silica gel starts out as one color such as deep cobalt blue or yellow and then turns to another color. When the product begins to adsorb moisture, blue indicating silica gel, for example, will turn pink and yellow silica gel will turn green.
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.
5A Molecular Sieve Type 5A molecular sieve is ideal for generating oxygen for industrial purposes including instrument air, pneumatic tools, and as feed gas. Type 13X Molecular Sieve Type 13X molecular sieve can be used for generating high purity oxygen for industrial purposes as well as oxygen for breathing apparatuse
