Hi technologist,

I know of a paint supplier using Sieves (putting them in a large mixing tank... about 10,000 litres or so) to dry out Methyl Ethyl Ketone from 400 ppm H2O to below 50 ppm.  Not really high-tech, but it worked well for them.

Sincerely,

Eugene

Thanks Eugene
I tried 3A sieves in liquid Phenol which gave me upto >100 ppm.
Not less than that.
