Adsorbent SORBEO SGWS is a beaded form of alumino-silicat gel resistant to liquid water. It is most frequently used as a protective layer in combination with silica gel or other adsorbents such as molecular sieves, activated alumina, activated carbons and catalysts in order to increase the reliability of the system. Due to its high adsorption capacity it can also be used as standalone adsorbent. With its high resistance against hydrothermal ageing and low regeneration temperature, SORBEO SGWS is ideal for applications where adsorbent regeneration with humid gas occurs (e.g. Heat of Compression dryers, … )
