Abstract

Breakthrough curves for the adsorption of methane, ethane, and propane mixture on 4A molecular sieve zeolite were obtained experimentally and theoretically at a constant temperature of 301 K. The equilibrium model and linear driving force model were used to predict the experimental breakthrough curves for this multi component mixture. The equilibrium model gave a satisfactory fit for experimental data. The model equations were solved by a numerical method based on backward finite difference with a fixed griding technique. The effect of feed flow rate (0.385-3.465 l/min), feed concentration (60.72-182.16 mmole/l), and adsorbates composition (11.73-20.11%) on the breakthrough curves were examined.
