Pressure swing adsorption gas separations are conducted inside an open loop Stirling cycle apparatus which may operate as an engine, refrigerator or heat pump. Adsorbent surfaces are associated with the thermal regenerators of the Stirling cycle apparatus, so that a preferentially adsorbed gas fraction is concentrated by parametric pumping into a colder end of an engine or into a warmer end of a refrigerator or heat pump, while a less readily adsorbed gas fraction is concentrated into warmer end of an engine or into colder end of a refrigerator or heat p...
A process for separating components of a gas mixture containing first and second components, the process including the steps of: (a) providing a working volume having a flow path for the gas mixture, (b) providing in the flow path an adsorbent material within an adsorbent bed and a thermal regenerator to cooperate with the adsorbent bed to produce an adsorbent/regenerator combination, (c) providing in the flow path first and second spaces disposed adjacent opposite ends of the adsorbent/regenerator combination, and maintaining the spaces at different tem...
