Abstract
Granular activated carbon (GAC) is useful for removing potentially harmful synthetic organic chemical (SOCs) found in drinking water sources. In the design of fixed-bed contacters, equilibrium considerations govern the usage rate of the carbon, while mass transfer considerations control the size and configuration of the contacter. The research deals with equilibrium considerations for single and multicomponent adsorption.
