	%X This article is presented an experimental and modeling
study of a four-bed pressure swing adsorption process using
zeolite13X to provide oxygen-enriched air. The binary mixture N2/O2
(79/21 vol %) was used as a feed stream. The effects of purge/feed
ratio (P/F), adsorption pressure, cyclic time and product flow rate on
product purity and recovery under nonisothermal condition were
studied. The adsorption dynamics of process were determined using
a mathematical model incorporated mass and energy balances. A
Mathlab code using finite difference method was developed to solve
the set of coupled differential-algebraic equations, and the simulation
results are agreed well with experimental results.
