Title: An Adsorption System for the Removal of Sulfur Oxides
Author: Faust, Gerald John
Abstract: The purpose of this study was to determine the SOp adsorption efficiencies of a uniquely designed , panel bed adsorption system . A vertical panel bed adsorber was attached to an incinerator fired with high sulfur fuel oil . The efficiency of sulfur dioxide removal from the combustion gases was then determined . Two adsorbents were investigated , Barnebey Cheney type CH activated carbon in 6 x 10 mesh size and Linde^^type AW -500 molecular sieve in 1 /8 inch cylindrical pellets with a pore diameter of 5A . The data obtained from operation of the panel bed adsorber , using these adsorbents , were then used to determine the characteristic constants for our mathematical model of the adsorption system . These data points were sufficient to yield an equation suitable for scale -up purposes with regard to the two adsorbents tested .
