Mass Transfer Studies on Fluidized Bed Adsorption Column for Phenol Adsorption

Sunil J. Kulkarni [2] | Ravi W. Tapre


Abstract: Mathematical modeling for removal of Phenol using fluidized bed adsorption from the wastewater has been presented in this work. Present experimental study deals with effect of initial concentration of phenol and particle size on the rate of adsorption. The fluid and solid phase mass transfer coefficient at various mass of phenol in the solvent per unit mass of adsorbent were found in well agreement with well known mathematical models. It is observed that the fluid phase and solid phase mass transfer coefficients increases with increase in initial phenol concentration and decrease in particle size. Maximum value of mass transfer coefficient was realized at higher phenol concentration and minimum particle size.
