Design of a Fixed Bed Adsorber Unit Using Microsoft Excel Spreadsheet

Abstract:

Article Preview

The design of a fixed bed adsorption unit using adsorbent produced from locally available palm kernel shell has been investigated using Microsoft Excel spreadsheet. Various mathematical models were considered but the simpler and more convenient Wheeler-Robell model was adopted in the design. The model was adopted in designing a template with Microsoft Excel Spreadsheet. A Microsoft Excel Spreadsheet was developed for the design. The template was used to determine the design parameters, such as length of column, diameter of bed, bed height and pressure drop across the bed.
