Abstract

A new activated carbon fiber cloth (ACFC) adsorber coupled with an electrothermal regenerator and a cryogenic condenser was designed and developed to efficiently capture and recover toxic chemical vapors (TCVs) from gas streams. The system was characterized for adsorption by ACFC, electrothermal desorption, and cryogenic-condensation to separate acetone, methyl ethyl ketone (MEK), 1,1,1-trichloro ethane (TCA), and toluene from simulated gas streams.
