Molecular Sieve Trap Media & Heater Replacements
Molecular sieve traps contain Zeolite desiccant to remove hydrocarbons and water vapor. The desiccant can be baked out or regenerated to remove water that has collected. (Do not regenerate if you are trapping hydrocarbons.) The in-line two piece design allows for easy cleaning and removal/replacement of the Zeolite. Further, heater elements to repair or upgrade the molecular sieve trap are available as genuine replacement parts from Nor-Cal.

Since its founding in 1962, Nor-Cal Products has been designing and building standard and custom foreline traps for the vacuum industry. These traps range in complexity from simple sealed coaxial traps designed to prevent oil backstreaming, to the triple-pass water cooled traps, which remove condensable gasses that contaminate mechanical pump oil or other parts of the system. Except for the permanently sealed one-piece body coaxial models, all Nor-Cal traps disassemble easily with a FKM O-ring and V-clamp. The two piece body allows for easy removal for cleaning or replacement. Standard finish for all traps is beadblast. Electropolish finish is available on request.
