Module for simulating multi-constituent mixture separation by gas permeation with a sweep current

In some applications, rather than using a membrane module in a classic configuration, using a membrane in a “sweep gas” configuration with a sweep current can be interesting. Our SWEEP module allow to integrated this unit operation directly into your process simulation tools, to compare different technologies and configurations.

Gas sweeping is used in 2 types of configuration:

  • Part of the retentate flow is reintroduced on the permeate side, particularly used for gas drying applications.
  • Two separate incoming and outgoing flows, in the case of membrane contactors.

SWEEP module also complies with the CAPE-OPEN communication protocol and is therefore compatible with all PSE software.
