One of the more common problems noted at Superfund sites is the contamination of ground water by volatile organic compounds (VOCs). One remedial alternative that is used to reduce or remove the VOC contamination from water is air stripping in a tower that uses either packing media or trays. The ability to strip a compound from the water depends on several factors, including the air/water ratio, the packing or tray type, and the Henry's Law value for the compounds of interest. The objective is to remove the VOCs from the water. When being considered for remediation purposes, the air stripper design should be evaluated for removal efficiency and cost of operation. The purpose of the project was to collect available design and operating data on operating air strippers and to input the design and operating parameters into the ASPEN simulator through a user interface program. The results from the ASPEN simulator were compared to the operating data gathered for the sites to determine the relative accuracy of the ASPEN model results when compared with the actual performance data.
