In order to obtain the dynamic character for hydrate-based gas separation, hydrates formation and dissociation were experimental investigated as gas mixture (CO2/H2) flows through cooled glass beads using Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). The experimental results showed that the hydrates blockage restricted the incomplete transformation of residual solution. The initial residual solution saturation is about 42.7%, and the highest hydrates saturation appears in the first cycle, which is higher than that of other two about 10%. The present study provided some important thermodynamic and kinetic data for hydrate-based technology in a flow system.
