Abstract : The design and operation of a laboratory-scale (100 SLPM) pressure swing adsorption (PSA) system is discussed. This work emphasizes the proper experimental procedures required for accurate and reproducible PSA system operation as well as the concept of layered adsorbent beds for optimum water removal. Results of the optimization are presented based on conditions defined by scaling down flows from a full-scale (400 SCFM) system.
