Some information is provided on industrial use of butane. Methods of its separation from gas mixtures are discussed. A new design of a device for adsorptive separation of gases is proposed. A notable difference of the design of the proposed adsorber from the existing designs is inclusion of a device for generating vibrations in the bulk of the loaded adsorbent, which reduces the loading density in the lower section of the adsorber. This technical solution helps improve the quality of butane separation from butane fraction and separate effectively other gas mixtures as well.
