17.10 SUMMARY—OBJECTIVES

In this chapter the basic concepts for adsorption, chromatography, and ion exchange separations were developed. At the end of this chapter, you should be able to satisfy the following objectives:

1. Determine equilibrium constants from data and use the equilibrium equations in calculations

2. Explain in your own language how the different sorption processes (e.g., elution chromatography, adsorption with thermal regeneration, PSA, SMB, monovalent-monovalent ion exchange, and water softening) work

3. Explain the meaning of each term in the development of the solute movement equations and use this theory for both linear and nonlinear isotherms to predict the outlet concentration and temperature profiles for a variety of ...
