BATCH ADSORPTION IN A FINITE VOLUME RESERVOIR – APPLICATION OF AN APPROXIMATE KINETIC MODEL

Monika Gwadera,

Abstrakt

The paper refers to the kinetics of batch adsorption in a perfect mixing reservoir. Systems
with a linear adsorption equilibrium, spherical adsorbent pellets and mass transfer resistance
in both phases are considered. An approximate kinetic model, based on approximation with
the use of continued fractions, was used in calculations. It was found that the model gives
results consistent with the exact solution.
