Pressure swing adsorption separation of a gas mixture is performed in an apparatus with a plurality of adsorbent beds cooperating to exchange energy from an adsorbent bed undergoing a depressurization step to an adsorbent bed undergoing a pressurization step, and with provision for thermal coupling in order to improve process efficiency. Thermal coupling is provided as heating to augment expansion energy recovery, and as a temperature gradient imposed in adsorbent beds to provide the function of a thermal regenerator in a regenerative thermodynamic cycle...
A process for separating first and second components of a gas mixture, the first component being more readily adsorbed under increase of pressure relative to the second component which is less readily adsorbed under increase of pressure over an adsorbent material, such that a gas mixture of the first and second components contacting the adsorbent material is relatively enriched in the first component at a lower pressure and is relatively enriched in the second component at a higher pressure when the pressure is cycled between the lower and higher pressur...
