Abstract:A fundamental mathematical model for simulation of ESA was also developed and evaluated. The model consists of: (a) material balances for organic vapors in the adsorption vessel and (b) energy balances for the adsorbent, carrier gas, vapor, and fittings. The model predicts outlet vapor concentrations, temperature profiles, power requirements, voltage requirements, and current requirements for ESA desorption cycles. The model is very helpful in the initial stages of design of an ESA system to reduce cost and time and to more effectively evaluate experimental results pertaining to energy and material balances.
