The article focuses on the evaluation of various medium such as activated carbon, fire-based (ACF), activated carbon honeycomb (ACH), and zeolite for performance improvement of rotary concentrators (RC). It states that media types were evaluated based on breakthrough capacity, adsorption efficiency, and structural strength. It mentions that hot water coils were needed in ACF-based RCs to control the humidity of about 50% in air stream while efficient hydrocarbon adsorption was observed in ACH.
