Polymer membranes are more permeable to oxygen than nitrogen. This property can be used to enrich the oxygen content of air. In the notebook EnrichedAirProduction.nb, permeate mole fraction is plotted versus separation factor for different values of the pressure ratio under the assumption of small stage cut. In addition, the permeate and residue mole fractions are plotted versus stage cut for a separation factor and a pressure ratio equal to 100 and 0.5, respectively.
