E – 1481 Applications & Limitations of Adsorption Technologies
Intended Audience: civil, environmental and sanitary engineers
PDH UNITS: 3
This course provides practical guidance for the design of liquid and vapor phase devices for the adsorption of organic chemicals. The adsorptive media addressed include granular activated carbon (GAC) and other alternative adsorption carbon media, such as powdered activated carbon (PAC) and non-carbon adsorbents.
2. REGENERATION, REACTIVATION, AND DISPOSAL OF SPENT ACTIVATED CARBON
This course will give environmental and civil engineers and other design and construction professionals an introduction to the design, construction and process control considerations for activated carbon treatment of liquid and vapor phase wastes.
At the successful conclusion of this course, you’ll be able to identify and discuss:
- Learn when larger molecules adsorb better than smaller molecules.
- Learn how non-polar molecules adsorb better than polar molecules;
- Learn which chemicals are most susceptible to adsorption technology;
- Learn about the different types of activated carbon available commercially;
- Learn the regeneration process for activated carbon;
- Learn about typical operating parameters for activated carbon processes; and
- Learn the importance of backwashing in activated arbon processes.
