Adsorption kinetics in fixed beds with nonlinear equilibrium relationships



Previous work by the authors on ion exchange kinetics for systems having nonlinear equilibrium relationships has been extended. Computer studies have produced additional concentration—bed length–time relationships for values of αo [DOUBLE BOND] 5, 10, and 50. This information and the results obtained previously for values of αo [DOUBLE BOND] 100 and 1,000 provide an extensive variation of the parameter αo for design applications. The composite results are represented graphically.
