The positron lifetime spectra were measured as a function of dehydration time for the ultra stable Y zeolite(USY) samples unheated, heated at 180 ℃in air and at 500 ℃in vacuum respectively. All spectra were resolved into five components. The intensity of the fifth component I5 is sensitive to the structure of the second pore in USY. The experimental results indicate that long time pumping with 0.5 Pa vacuum can dehydrate, but heating the sample at 500 ℃is a more effective method of dehydration for the second pore in USY zeolite.
