Preparation of MFI type zeolite membranes in a flow system with circulation of the synthesis solution

2006-06-20
MFI type zeolite membranes were prepared on seeded tubular alumina supports in a flow system where the synthesis solution was circulated through the support with flow rates of 6, 24 and 48 mL/min. Syntheses were carried out using clear solutions, at 80 degrees C and 95 degrees C at atmospheric pressure in the flow system, and at autogeneous pressure in the batch system. The membranes synthesized in the flow system had thickness of 1-2 mu m, and were thinner than the membranes synthesized in the batch system. After one synthesis step, the N-2/SF6 ideal selectivities at room temperature and n-C4H10/i-C4H10 (50-50%) separation selectivities at 200 degrees C of the membranes synthesized in the flow system were between 9.1-14.9 and 6.1-7.6, respectively, and those of the membrane synthesized in the batch system were 27 and 6.1. Multiple synthesis steps improved the membrane quality so that the membrane prepared with two consecutive steps had N-2/SF6 ideal selectivity of 141 and n-C4H10/i-C4H10 separation selectivity of 44 at 200 degrees C. Among many zeolite membranes reported in literature, these membranes are one of the few zeolite membranes synthesized in a flow system and the first MFI type membranes synthesized in a flow system with circulation of the synthesis solution.

Separation of gas and organic/water mixtures by MFI type zeolite membranes synthesized in a flow system
Soydas, Belma; Dede, Oezlem; Culfaz, Ali; Kalıpçılar, Halil (Elsevier BV, 2010-01-01)
MFI type zeolite membranes were synthesized in a recirculating flow system at 95 degrees C where the synthesis solution was flown over the tubular alpha-alumina supports. The performance of the membranes for the separation of binary gas mixtures and alcohol/water liquid mixtures was investigated. A membrane synthesized by two consecutive synthesis steps had a separation selectivity of 15 and 11 for equimolar mixtures of n-C4H10/CH4 and n-C4H10/N-2 at 200 degrees C, respectively. The membrane selectively per...

The Group 8 and 9 metal(III) ion-exchanged zeolite were prepared from the ion exchange of metal(III) ions with the extra framework Na+ cations of zeolite Y with a Si/Al ratio of 2.5. They were characterized by using inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectroscopy (ICP-OES), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). The Group 8 and 9 metal(III) ion-exchanged zeolite materials prepared were tested as catalysts in decomposition of nitrous oxide to oxygen and nitrogen. The cat...

Ternary component mixed matrix membrane was prepared from PES, SAPO-34 and 2-hydroxy 5-methyl aniline on a macroporous alumina disk by the solvent evaporation method in order to investigate the effect of existence of an inorganic support. The membrane and its pure PES/Alumina counterpart were characterized by single gas permeability measurements of H-2, CH4, C2H6 and C3H8. The corresponding H-2/CH4 selectivities of membranes were 71.3 and 41. The membranes were also used to separate equimolar mixtures of H-...

Kalıpçılar, Halil; Noble, RD; Falconer, JL (2002-12-01)
Alumina-coated, silicon carbide monoliths were used as supports for B-ZSM-5 zeolite membranes, which were synthesized by in situ hydrothermal crystallization. Both 2 turn x 2 mm (66 channels) and 4 mm x 4 mm (22 channels) monoliths with effective membrane area/volume ratios of 10.6 and 7.2 cm(2)/cm(3), respectively, were used. The membranes separated C-4 and C-6 hydrocarbon isomer vapor mixtures with high selectivities. The selectivities and permeances were comparable to tubular ZSM-5 membranes for butane i...
