Role of process steps in pressure swing adsorption cycles

N.F. Kirkby, C.N. Kenney

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


The performance of four different Pressure Swing Adsorption cycles were measured experimentally and modelled theoretically for a process which produced oxygen from air over 5A zeolite. The purge cycle recovered less oxygen than cycles using a backfill step at comparable product concentrations and amounts.
