Abstract

Adsorption is considered as the effective method for removing phenol from wastewater. The phenol adsorption can be carried out in batch and continuous mode. The residencetime distribution (RTD) studies are necessary to study mixing, flow behavior inside thecolumn and ideality of the system. Therefore, in the current work, RTD studies were carriedout in a column packed with the adsorbent viz Lantana camra (forest waste), which causesthreat to the ecosystem. The experiments were conducted for different flow rates of phenolby using sodium chloride as tracer. The performance equation of the column was obtainedby making mass balance of solute in a bed volume element. The dispersion coefficientcalculated from the RTD was used for calculating mass transfer coefficient. The calculatedmass transfer coefficient was used for developing the correlation in terms of dimensionless groups Reynolds number and Sherwood number.
