Abstract:

Design data and guidelines are presented to help predict the performance of axial flow carbon dioxide canister designs using alkali metal hydroxide absorbers. The design data are derived from a large series of laboratory tests conducted at the Naval Coastal Systems Center to isolate the effects of environmental and goemetric parameters on canister absorption efficiency. Sample canister designs are considered to demonstrate the use of the derived data to predict effective canister life and pressure drop levels. Alternative techniques for the sorption of carbon dioxide are also reviewed. Originator supplied
