CFD modelling of adsorption in carbon filters
Publication: European PHOENICS User Conference, Wimbledon (presentation only)
A CFD technique for predicting the performance of various types of carbon filter has been developed. Initial work concentrated on prediction of flow distribution and pressure drop within the filter units, and models of a range of filter geometries have been developed both using ‘packed bed’ and ‘monolith’ filters. More recently development of the model has focused on prediction of vapour adsorption, and considerable effort has gone into validating the predictions on a small scale packed bed filter.
