Abstract:

An investigation was made to increase the effectiveness of the CO2 Scrubber, currently used in nuclear submarines, to reduce the CO2 levels in the atmospheres. Redesigns of parts of the present unit could show appreciable increases in efficiency. To approach the desired level of 0.5 CO2 in the submarine atmosphere, a size redesign will be required. The data revealed that a redesign of the stripper on the present size unit could give nearly twice the current stripping efficiency.
