Contaminant transport in ground water is an important environmental process that
affects a host of natural systems. Transport of contaminants is affected by many
processes, including aqueous complexation, adsorption, and redox reactions. One of the
most important components of an aquifer that controls transport is iron-oxide. In this
A multiple stage crosscurrent packed column suitable for gas-liquid
mass transfer was constructed and operated. The absorption
column consisted of a rectangular box constructed of plexiglass and
metal. Deflection baffles were positioned at regular intervals on
opposite sides of a central packed section to divert the gas phase
At present the adsorption kinetic of ions by soil particles is considered to be a surface reaction. When the transport of solutes in soils is described using the one-dimensional flow equation, it becomes a serious problem that lateral diffusion of ions from the bulk solution towards the soil surfaces is...
A multi-stage, crosscurrent column, packed with Pall rings, was
employed for oxygen absorption from an oxygen-rich air phase by
contacting with water. Mass transfer data were collected for the
column using 6 and 12 baffles and employing a partial gas phase recycle.
Data were also collected from a countercurrent column...
The performance of a multiple stage crosscurrent tower packed
with Pall rings was characterized with and without a recycle loop on
the gas stream. The column used 12 baffles. The absorption system
studied was the transfer of oxygen from an oxygen-enriched air stream
into a water stream which is a...
Batch sorption tests were conducted using 3,4-DCP and cellulose triacetate as the sorbate/sorbent pair. Sorbate concentrations
in the liquid were sampled with time and analyzed by electron
capture detector gas chromatography. Sorption was found to be a two
stage process characterized by a rapid initial uptake followed by a
