Abstract: The micropore diffusion model, including the concentration dependence of the micropore diffusivity, originally developed to simulate pressure swing adsorption air separation for nitrogen production on a carbon molecular sieve, has been applied to a similar process using the zeolite molecular sieve RS-10. The equilibrium and kinetic parameters for the model have been determined from single-component breakthrough curve measurements. It is confirmed that the concentration dependence of the micropore diffusivity has a large effect on the performance of a zeolite-based kinetically controlled PSA separation process. When this effect is allowed for, the model gives performance predictions which are in close agreement with published experimental data. © 1993.
