CO2/O2 separation (50/50 mixture)

CO2/O2 separation (50/50 mixture)

CO2/O2 separation (50/50 mixture)


I'm looking at technologies suitable for separation of CO2 from O2 stream.  The stream will be approximately 50/50 CO2 and O2.  I need a pure stream of CO2 with no O2. Ideally the O2 should have very little CO2 too.  The plant is very small, lab scale processing around 2kg/hr. I've been looking at molesieves (5a/13x) but I'm interested in  membrane technology. Has anyone got any suggestions?

RE: CO2/O2 separation (50/50 mixture)


We have been using molecular sieves for this application. 'Domnick Hunter' manufactures these O2 absorbers in lab scale models but they are a bit expensive.


Truth: Even the hardest of the problems will have atleast one simple solution. Mine may not be one.

Thanks for the lead.....
