Aquivion (R) E87-12S Perfluorosulfonated acid ionomer material (PFSA) has been studied as a membrane technology for natural gas sweetening from CO2 , H2S due to its interesting chemical and mechanical stability and good separation performance for polar compounds in humid environments.

The results obtain confirm the strong dependence of Aquivion (R) on water activity and temperature, and its ability to separate gases based on their water solubility without substantial differences between pure and mixed gas experiments.

In particular, the permeability of H2S is higher than that of CO(2 )and methane CH4, reaching values of 500 Barrer at 50 degrees C and 80% RH, against 450 and 23 Barrer for the other two gases respectively. Additionally, when tested at higher pressures of up to 10 bar under humid conditions, the membrane properties remained largely unchanged, thus confirming the overall stability and durability of Aquivion (R) E87-12S in acid environments.

Abstract

Aquivion (R) E87-12S Perfluorosulfonated acid ionomer material (PFSA) has been studied as a membrane technology for natural gas sweetening from CO2 , H2S due to its interesting chemical and mechanical stability and good separation performance for polar compounds in humid environments. In the present work, permeation of the H2S/CO2/CH4 ternary mixture in this short-side PFSA chain was investigated at pressures up to 10 bar, temperatures up to 50 degrees C, and in a range of relative humidity (RH) from 20% to 90%. The results obtain confirm the strong dependence of Aquivion (R) on water activity and temperature, and its ability to separate gases based on their water solubility without substantial differences between pure and mixed gas experiments. Indeed, even when tested in ternary mixture, the permeation behavior remains similar to that observed for pure components and binary mixtures. In particular, the permeability of H2S is higher than that of CO(2 )and methane CH4, reaching values of 500 Barrer at 50 degrees C and 80% RH, against 450 and 23 Barrer for the other two gases respectively. Additionally, when tested at higher pressures of up to 10 bar under humid conditions, the membrane properties remained largely unchanged, thus confirming the overall stability and durability of Aquivion (R) E87-12S in acid environments.
