An automated experimental test facility, intended specifically for qualification of the krypton and xenonadsorption properties of activated carbon samples, was designed and constructed. The experimentalapparatus was designed to allow an on-line control of the main physical parameters influencing greatlythe adsorption property of activated carbon. The measurement of the adsorption coefficient, based uponthe elution curve method, can be performed with a precision better than 5% at gas pressure values rangingfrom atmospheric pressure up to 9 bar and bed temperature from 0 up to 80◦C. The carrier gas flow ratecan be varied from 40 up to 4000 N cm3min−1allowing measurement of dynamic adsorption coefficientwith face velocities from 0.3 up to 923 cm min−1 depending on the gas pressure and the test cell beingused. The moisture content of the activated carbon can be precisely controlled during measurement,through the relative humidity of the carrier gas.
