Modeling of adsorption in a mixing tank
Languages of publication
Computational models for adsorption in a tank are presented. The approximate model provides the same results as the exact model. The diffusion coefficient of a dye in an adsorbent pellet and the mass transfer coefficient in a fluid phase were determined on the basis of the measurements of dye adsorption on the activated carbon. It was determined how the fraction of the resistance to mass transfer in the fluid to the overall mass transfer resistance changes during adsorption. It was found that, for the examined system, the main resistance to mass transfer is located in the liquid phase.
