Chapter 17: Introduction to Adsorption, Chromatography, and Ion Exchange

In the first 15 chapters we looked at separation techniques such as distillation and extraction that are often operated as equilibrium-staged separations, and even when they are not operated this way can be analyzed as equilibrium-staged separations. In Chapter 16 we studied membrane separations that are not operated as equilibrium processes; however, well-mixed membrane separators are analogous to flash distillation, and staged models are useful for integrating the mass balances and rate expressions for more complex flow patterns. Since the membrane processes are normally operated at steady state, the analysis is usually straightforward. In this chapter we will study ...
