This paper describes the design and engineering testing of a low-temperature adsorption unit installed on the N. S. Savannah, designed to remove and store fission-product gases for a 100-day period. Included is a description of the purification cycle, a discussion of design features and engineering test results, and a presentation of the design data for the adsorption of gases on activated charcoal at low temperatures.
