Data and methodology for measurement of adsorption of odorant on carbon

Unique experimental determinations of adsorption equilibria for the trace components of natural gas including, ethane, propane, n-butane, n-pentane, and odorant compounds tert-butyl mercaptan (TBM) and tetrahydrothiophene (THT) were obtained on a newly developed carbon formulation (ANGUARD 5, section 2.2.3) provided by SSCL. The experimental adsorption data were successfully correlated using the Adsorption Potential Theory.

A highly sophisticated experimental installation was designed and built to enable these measurements which could set the standard for future measurements of this type.
