Can ProMax model a mole sieve?
The ProMax Property Stencil includes a Membrane Tool which is a block that simulates an asynchronous vapor phase separation. This simplified model operates irrespective of equipment geometry. The tool provides the ability to perform a separation based on fixed total area, or to solve for the area given desired separation constraints. Permeability data (selectivity) is dependent on the polymer employed and its thickness. Example values from patent literature are provided in the Edit Permeability dialog for your convenience, however, consult literature or vendor references for final designs. See ProMax Help for detailed information on the Membrane Tool.
