Abstract

In this study, the hollow fiber replaces the conventional tray and/or structured packing. Using a column less than 40 cm long an ∼ 8% enrichment of propylene from a 30% propane/70%propylene mixture was achieved. An HTU as low as 8.8 cm was obtained. Such a low HTU has not been previously reported for propane/propylene separation. The mass transfer time was less than one second.
