Pilot Scale Electrothermal Swing Adsorption System

Pilot-Scale ESA System


Pilot-Scale ESA System Inside the Enclosure

The pilot-scale electrothermal swing adsorption (ESA) system is a new technology that removes dilute organic vapors emitted from industrial gas streams with activated carbon fiber cloth (ACFC) and recovers them as liquids with electrothermal regeneration of the ACFC and rapid in-vessel condensation of the organic vapors.
