Disk-type SrFeCo0.5Ox asymmetric membranes were prepared for high-temperature oxygen separation using both a previously reported solid state technique in which ethyl cellulose is introduced and then removed by calcination to produce a porous support layer and a modified technique in which carbon fiber is added to the ethyl cellulose. The oxygen permeabilities of the resulting SrFeCo0.5Ox asymmetric membranes were measured at 973-1173 K. The addition of carbon fiber to ethyl cellulose resulted in the improvement of gas diffusivity in the porous support layer, which increased the flux of oxygen through the modified asymmetric membrane.
