Multiple thermal pulses are employed to regenerate segments of an adsorber bed simultaneously in thermal swing adsorption processes. The invention is particularly applicable to air purification as it helps to reduce purge flow and improve regeneration efficiency.
[ What is claimed is:] [1.] A process for regenerating a sorbent bed the process comprising the steps of:a) providing a sorbent bed having first and second ends and one or more adsorbent materials disposed therebetween, said one or more adsorbent materials having selected gases adsorbed thereon, wherein said selected gases are provided from a feed gas stream;b) providing a first thermal pulse by:i) adding heat energy Q.sub.1 to said adsorbent bed so as to create a first heat front that traverses a first region of said adsorbent bed;ii) providing a first ...
