Fabrication And Application Of Zeolite Membranes

  • Hidetoshi Kita (a1)

Zeolite Membranes Were Prepared On A Porous Ceramic Support By Hydrothermal Synthesis Using Conventional Heating System And Microwave Heating. Naa And T Type Zeolite Membranes Were Highly Selective For Permeating Water Preferentially With The High Permeation Flux, While Silicalite Membranes Exhibited Preferential Organic Compound Permeation From Water Such As Ethanol/Water. Nay And Nax Zeolite Membranes Showed A High Alcohol Selectivity For Several Feed Mixtures With Methanol Or Ethanol And A High Benzene Selectivity For Benzene/Cyclohexane And Benzene/N-Hexane Separation. The Performance Of The Zeolite Membranes Was The Most Favorable One For Pervaporation Membranes Which Have Been Published So Far And A Tubular Type Module Using A Type Zeolite Membrane For Dehydration Of Organic Liquids Has Been Put Into Industrial Operation. The Tubular Type Pervaporation And Vapor Permeation Module Can Produce 99.8 Wt% Ethanol From 600 L/H, 90 Wt% Ethanol Feed At 120 °C. For The Mass Production Of Zeolite Membrane A New Synthetic Method Using A Microwave Heating Is Also Proposed.
