Effects of Operating Pressure and Temperature on the Oxygen Diffusion through Hollow Fiber Ceramic Membrane
Duduku Krishnaiah, Rosalam Sarbatly, S.M. Anisuzzaman and Rendy Kasin

Abstract:
Dense ceramic membrane has become a major selection for its potential to give high oxygen enrichment from surrounding air. The separation through dense ceramic membrane has overcome several limitations of polymeric membrane material and therefore it is capable of performing efficient means of oxygen production. Experiments were carried out to study the potential of ceramic membrane for oxygen system on oxygen/nitrogen mixtures, where the effects of operating pressure and temperature were observed and discussed. The oxygen concentration in the permeate stream increases when the operating pressure increased for each set of air flow rate of 20, 30 and 40 LPM. The permeate oxygen concentration at 40 LPM and 25 psi was found to be 5.30 ppm where as at 20 LPM and 150°C and was 5.13 ppm.
