DEHYDRATION

Maguin Interis has been the first to develop the dehydration technology on molecular sieves with many patents which are references in the fuel bioethanol or dehydrated ethanol production for pharmaceutical or chemical applications.
Many Maguin-Interis designs of dehydration systems on molecular sieves are available according to the integration level of the dehydration unit in the distillery, with ever higher performances and ever lower vapor consumptions.
Maguin Interis reputation owes to the dehydration field of molecular sieves, to the reliability of their units, and particularly to the lifetime of the zeolites lasting more than to 10 years.
