WEBINAR:
Design and operational analysis of pressure swing adsorption systems

WATCH NOW

Adsorption process development is typically a slow, iterative procedure where the goal is restricted to confidence rather than optimisation. Engineers must rely on pilot plant testing and design heuristics because legacy simulation software is unsuited to the flow reversals, fast transients and discontinuities inherent to cyclic separations.

Equation-oriented dynamic modelling can solve cyclic separation systems rapidly and robustly, allowing engineers to answer design and operational questions based on accurate predictions.

Topics covered

Advanced modelling helps engineers to:

  • Determine cyclic steady state
  • Minimise the number of beds
  • Prove new adsorbents
  • Scale up or scale down
  • Test emergency scenarios and upsets

This webinar demonstrates new technology to bring clarity to adsorption process development and optimise the design and operation of cyclic separation systems. Topics will include:

  • Adsorption technologies: Types of systems and design considerations
  • Analysis of PSA systems
    • Handling isotherms
    • Single bed setup and breakthrough validation
    • Easy setup and simulation of multi-bed operations
    • Computationally efficient approach for operational analysis
  • PSA application example: Hydrogen purification
