How long does the molecular sieve last?
The molecular sieve life is based on the feed air quality. If the feed air quality always meets recommended standards, the sieve can last indefinitely (20 years or more!) If the molecular sieve ever became contaminated by oil, dirt or water can it be cleaned or replaced? If the molecular sieve is contaminated by oil it will have to be replaced. Water contamination, based on degree, does not necessarily mean that the sieve will need to be replaced. Dirt is a rare cause of sieve replacement, but other contaminates like ammonia can cause sieve failure. Consult factory for specific air contamination that may be present at the generator site.
