Enhancement of Equilibrium Shift in Dehydrogenation Reactions Using a Novel Membrane Reactor Semi-Annual Report: September 1996-February 1997
Description: A mathematical model is developed to describe the permeation of hydrogen through thin-film palladium ceramic composite membrane in cocurrent flow configuration. Numerical simulation results show that the model under predicts reject composition and over predicts the product purity. These results suggest that the gas phase mass transfer resistance could be important. The difference between the predicted and actual hydrogen composition is less than 12%. Thus the model appears to be adequate for predicting the membrane module performance.
