The effects of the process factors of a deodorizing rotor system on its cyclic performance, including the purification efficiency of the process air and the enhancement ratio of the regeneration gas, have been investigated numerically. Optimum design and operation strategies for proper selection of the process factors are proposed. Based on the system cyclic performance chart, it is found that there exists optimum operating conditions for the optimum cyclic performance for the single component system, however, for the binary component system there could be a compromise between the cyclic performances of both components.
