Abstract : This document describes a gas generator which separates a gas such as oxygen from a gas mixture such as air using a sorbent process. A sorbent contained in a fixed cooled bed absorbs the gas from the mixture; simultaneously a second bed of sorbent which previously absorbed the gas is heated and the gas is thereby desorbed from the sorbent. After a given time, the functions of the beds are exchanged.
