Abstract:

Processes for the removal of carbon dioxide from gas mixtures have been sufficiently developed in the chemical industry. In aerospace application, however, uses of many of the techniques are restricted severely by weight, power, and volume of the process units and other characteristics of the processes. In addition, the processes must be operated in the zero gravitational field. The research is an evaluation of a multistage centrifugal contactor which seems promising for use in life support systems.
