Modeling and Simulation of the Sulfur Dioxide Adsorption Process in Natural Zeolites
The paper presents a solution for modeling and simulation of the adsorption process of the sulfur dioxide in natural zeolites. The adsorption process is modeled as a distributed parameter process, its dynamics depending on three independent variables: time and two spatial variables. In order to simulate the adsorption process, an original form of the approximating analytical solution which describes the process work in dynamical regime is proposed and used. The coefficients of the approximating analytical solution are determined using experimental data obtained from the real plant. A direct practical application, resulted through the simulation of the obtained mathematical model, is the approximation of the time period in which the saturation of the zeolites of different dimensions occurs. Having the mentioned time period, the operators from the industrial field can decide with precision the moment when a zeolite block has to be replaced in order to avoid the environment pollution.
