Zeolite hydration states are determined by evaluating the partitioning of water between water vapor and zeolite hydration water for isovolumetric systems at each temperature and pressure.
At each temperature, reaction rates were determined over a wide range of saturation states from supersaturated (0 to 1.2 kcal/mol), to near-equilibrium, to far-from-equilibrium conditions (0 to -8 kcal/mol).
For example, the hydration states of Na- and K-clinoptilolite decrease by about 50% as temperature increases from 25ºC to 250ºC and at water vapor pressures along the water-vapor curve of pure water.
