A tubular commercial mesoporous support was used to prepare a Pt impregnated membrane using the reservoir method and tested for moderate temperature (300 C) gas transport of hydrogen (H2), helium (He) and nitrogen (N2) gas molecules. H2 and N2 gas permeation of 6.1 and 4.5 l/min at 1.0 barg feed pressure and 25 C respectively was obtained from the support. On the other hand, H2 and N2 gas permeation of 4.6 and 1.7 l/min at 1.0 barg feed pressure and 25 C respectively was also obtained from the Pt membrane. Selectivity of H2 over He of 1.96 at 300 C and 1.6 barg for the Pt membrane was obtained and found to be higher than that of the theoretical Knudsen selectivity. Also, a selectivity of H2 over N2 of 2.72 at 25 C and 1.0 barg was obtained and found to be close to that of the theoretical Knudsen selectivity. The gas permeation and the selectivity performance of the membrane were evaluated.
