High pressure sorption isotherms via differential pressure measurements
- 244 Downloads
A differential pressure adsorption unit (DPAU) has been constructed which is capable of accurately measuring isotherm data up to 2000 psia with as little as 100 mg of sample. This non-traditional adsorption/desorption method has been benchmarked by comparing hydrogen and methane isotherms measured with standard volumetric and gravimetric instruments on a NaA (4A) zeolite and an activated carbon at near ambient temperatures. The results from stability tests and well as the details of the mathematical analysis for this differential pressure method are also provided.
