Model Building and Software Development for Gas Membrane Separation
A differential mathematical model for hollow fiber membrane gas seperator was established and used for multi-component gas separation, especially natural gas. The influences of the characteristics of feed gas, pressure drop within the hollow fibers and concentration polarization were taken into consideration. We developed a computing software for gas membrane separation with LabVIEW. This software can be used for hollow fiber membrane separation of gases, continuous membrane column cascade operation and multi-level membrane modules in designing and checking calculations, can replace the tedious manual calculations, and has a great reference value in laboratory testing and industrial design applications.
