The adsorption breakthrough test of hydrogen chloride was performed by loading zeolite 13X pellet (molecular sieve 13X, Aldrich Co., USA), a commercial absorbent, onto a fixed bed reactor (height 15 cm, inside diameter 0.5 cm). The breakthrough test was carried out by changing various experimental conditions such as inlet flow rate (0.5, 1, 1.5, 2 l/min), HCl concentration (200, 350, 500, 650 ppm), reaction temperature (30, 50, 70, 90°C), and reaction pressure (1, 5, 10, 15, 20 bar) with considering the retention time and space velocity. After evaluating the adsorption and the desorption characteristics of HCl on the MS-13X, the consecutive cyclic test was carried out with optimum condition. The optical, physical, and chemical characteristics of MS-13X were analyzed using BET, XRD, SEM, EDX, and TGA before and after breakthrough tests.
