Optimization of Design and Operational Parameters of Adsorbers for Purification of Neon-Helium Mixture

The analysis of options for arranging an adsorber composed of several sections is given. The formulas for calculating the geometric parameters of individual adsorber elements were obtained for a specified diameter of the cooling nitrogen bath. The expenditure of refrigerant and energy required to regenerate the sorbent were defined for several constructional variants. The operating costs for a single adsorber cycle were calculated. The optimum regeneration temperature was determined at which the cost of purifying the mixture is minimal.
