Experimental and Analytical Investigation of Pressure Differentials for Clean and Loaded Wire Meshes Used in Zeolite Retention 2004-01-2544

Following a series of anomalies of the carbon dioxide removal assembly (CDRA) on the International Space Station (ISS), a CDRA teardown, test, and evaluation (TT&E) effort found that the sorbent material was not retained as intended by the packed beds and that presence of the sorbent in the check valve and selector valves was the cause of the failure of these components. This paper documents the development of design data for an in-line filter element. The purpose of the in-line filter is to provide temporary protection for on-orbit CDRA hardware until the bed retainment system can be redesigned and replaced.
