(EN) DIELECTRIC HEATING OF ADSORBENTS TO INCREASE DESORPTION RATES
(FR) CHAUFFAGE DIÉLECTRIQUE D'ADSORBANTS POUR AUGMENTER LES TAUX DE DÉSORPTION
Abstract
(EN)
An adsorbence-based gas storage system includes a pressure vessel containing a granular gas adsorbent material, for example, an activated carbon or a metal-organic framework. The system may be configured to store natural gas or methanol. The pressure vessel includes a pressure release device, and an inlet/outlet valve for passage of gas into and out of the pressure vessel. A microwave or RF generator is configured to selectively heat the adsorbent material. In one embodiment the generator is connected to the pressure vessel through one or more waveguides, and at one or more locations along the pressure vessel. A sensor, for example, a temperature sensor, monitors the temperature in the pressure vessel. A computing device uses the sensor data to control the generator to selectively heat the adsorbent material.

Système de stockage de gaz basé sur l'adsorbance comprenant une cuve sous pression contenant un matériau adsorbant gazeux granulaire, par exemple, un carbone activé ou une ossature métallo-organique. Le système peut être conçu pour stocker du gaz naturel ou du méthanol. La cuve sous pression comprend un dispositif de libération de pression, et un clapet d'entrée/de sortie pour le passage de gaz dans et hors de la cuve sous pression. Un générateur de micro-ondes ou de RF est conçu pour chauffer de manière sélective le matériau adsorbant. Selon un mode de réalisation, le générateur est relié à la cuve sous pression par le biais d'un ou de plusieurs guides d'ondes, et à un ou plusieurs emplacements le long de la cuve sous pression. Un capteur, par exemple un capteur de température, surveille la température dans la cuve sous pression. Un dispositif informatique utilise les données de capteur pour commander le générateur afin de chauffer sélectivement le matériau adsorbant.
