The change of the pressure drop in a fixed bed of NаХ zeolite is considered depending on the flow rate of the incoming gas. A new method of adsorption gas purification with optimal performance mode of adsorber is proposed. The essence of the method is that while maintaining the pressure drop in the fixed bed of zeolite NaX, conditions are created for the possibility to completely exhaust the adsorption capacity of the adsorbent during adsorption of H2S/NO2 /CO2 gas mixtures. A system of equations describing the pressure drop during gas-phase adsorption in a fixed bed of the adsorbent is proposed.
