To facilitate the use of carbon dioxide separation technology in industrial hydrogen production, we have developed a device that can increase the carbon dioxide gas recovery rate to 95% under existing production conditions. This device solves the issues associated with the complex operation of traditional industrial gas separation spherical tanks, including their complex operation, inefficient gas recovery rates ranging from 60%-70%, as well as the toxicity and difficulty in disposing of carbon dioxide treatment agents. The device utilizes the selective permeability of an iron mordenite-containing sieve plate for direct gas injection. The sieve plates are welded to a carbon dioxide gas tank for sample injection, forming an integrated structure. The sieve plate and the sample injection structure are then fixed and sealed using an ultra-high vacuum sealant.
