Fixed-bed column studies for the removal of Ag(Ⅰ) and Cr(Ⅲ) from individual aqueous solutions using puffed rice husk were investigated in this work. The experiments were conducted to study the effect of important column parameters such as bed height, feed flow rate and feed initial concentration of solution. It was found that increasing bed depth yielded longer service time while increase in influent concentration and flow rate resulted in faster breakthrough. Bed Depth Service Time (BDST) model was applied to analyze the experimental data and the model parameters were evaluated. Good agreement of the experimental breakthrough curves with the model predictions was observed.
