Abstract

The aim of the present research is the shaping of zeolite 13X and study the effect of singular and binary system of binders. For this purpose, zeolite 13X was successfully synthesized under hydrothermal conditions. Different combinations of polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) and polyethylene glycol (PEG) have been used for shaping. Physical properties of granules were measured by nitrogen adsorption-desorption and results showed that increasing the binder content up to a certain amount, enhanced the physical properties but with a further increase in binder content surface area decreases. Also it was found that mechanical strength was decreased with increasing binder content after burnout
