Descripción general

A carbon molecular sieve (CMS) is the porous carbon skeletal framework that remains after pyrolysis of a polymeric precursor. These particles are:
  • Spherical (better packed bed performance than granular particles)
  • Hard and non-friable (pack well, will not break)
  • Highly porous (high surface areas)
  • Used for molecules with an analyte size relative to C2-C5 n-alkanes
  • Hydrophobic (can be used in high humidity environments)

Generally, CMS adsorbents offer greater relative adsorptive strength compared to spherical graphitized polymer carbon (SGPC) and graphitized carbon black (GCB) adsorbents. Our Carbosieve products are a type of CMS adsorbent.
  • Have non-tapered pores
  • Very strong adsorptive strength due to only containing micropores
  • Provide great performance for many small, volatile analytes that most adsorbents have trouble retaining

  6. What is the Department of Transportation shipping information for this product?

    Transportation information can be found in Section 14 of the product's (M)SDS.To access the shipping information for this material, use the link on the product detail page for the product. 

  7. What is the maximum temperature for this packing?

    The maximum temperature for this packing is 200 °C.

  8. What does the 80/100 stand for in the product description?

    The 80/100 refers to the mesh size range of the actual particles.  When working with mesh size: the larger the mesh number, the smaller the diameter of the particle.  In this case 80 refers to a diameter of 177 microns and 100 refers to a diameter of 149 microns.  Therefore; the particles in this product with 80/100 will range between 149 microns and 177 microns.

Tetrachloroethene, also known as perchloroethylene (PCE), is a common groundwater contaminant throughout the United States. The incomplete reductive dechlorination of PCE--resulting in accumulations of trichloroethene, dichloroethene isomers, and/or vinyl chloride--has been observed by many investigators in a wide variety of...
