PROCESS CYCLES
GENERAL CONCEPTS The mode of operation of an adsorption process may consist of just one step with the adsorbent removed at the end for reactivation or disposal. Such a process may be carried out in a fixed bed or agitated vessel. These are discussed in Batch Adsorption. Although there are many practical applications for which the sorbent is discarded after one use, most applications involve the removal of adsorbates from the adsorbent (i.e., regeneration). This allows the adsorbent to be reused and the adsorbates to be recovered, and the adsorption process is carried out in a cyclic fashion. A cyclic adsorption process generally consists of repeated adsorption and desorption (…
