An initial study has been conducted using a commercially available alumina membrane. The study is based on single gas permeation method involving He, O2, CO2 and N2. The effect of trans membrane pressure drop, gas molecular mass, kinectic diameter, permselectivity and permeance were observed and discussed. Helium showed a faster flowrate through the membrane and the order of flow was He>O2>N2>CO2. The experiment was conducted at constant room temperature.
