Abstract:

A laboratory device was assembled for a closed air loop analysis of carbon dioxide removal agents. Lithium hydroxide, potassium hydroxide, soda lime, and molecular sieve 5A were used for establishing the adaptability and capability of this device for evaluation of other carbon dioxide removal agents. Carbon dioxide absorption curves from 1 percent andor 5 percent carbon dioxide in laboratory air were obtained. Borax solution and amine solutions or solids showed some carbon dioxide removal capacity which will be further investigated for quantitative data on the removal process.
