Title
(EN) SEPARATION PROCESS USING MICROCHANNEL TECHNOLOGY
(FR) PROCESSSUS DE SEPARATION À L’AIDE D’UNE TECHNOLOGIE DE MICROCANAL
Abstract
(EN)
The disclosed invention relates to a process and apparatus for separating a first fluid from a fluid mixture comprising the first fluid. The process comprises: (A) flowing the fluid mixture into a microchannel separator in contact with a sorption medium, the fluid mixture being maintained in the microchannel separator until at least part of the first fluid is sorbed by the sorption medium, removing non-sorbed parts of the fluid mixture from the microchannel separator; and (B) desorbing first fluid from the sorption medium and removing desorbed first fluid from the microchannel separator. The process and apparatus are suitable for separating nitrogen or methane from a fluid mixture comprising nitrogen and methane. The process and apparatus may be used for rejecting nitrogen in the upgrading of sub-quality methane.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un processus et un appareil de séparation d’un premier fluide à partir d’un mélange fluidique composé du premier fluide. Le processus comprend : (A) l’écoulement du mélange fluidique dans un séparateur de microcanal en contact avec un support de sorption, le mélange fluidique étant conservé dans le séparateur de microcanal jusqu’à ce qu’au moins une partie du premier fluide soit absorbé par le support de sorption, supprimant du séparateur de microcanal les parties non absorbées du mélange fluidique; et (B) désorption du premier fluide à partir du support de sorption et suppression du séparateur de microcanal du premier fluide désorbé. Le processus et l’appareil conviennent pour séparer du nitrogène ou du méthane d’un mélange fluidique qui en est composé. Le processus et l’appareil peuvent être utilisés pour rejeter du nitrogène dans du méthane de sous-qualité améliorée.
