Product Code: CE 583


Product Details

Technical Description
A pump delivers raw water to an adsorber containing a fixed bed of activated carbon. A concentrated colorant solution is added into the raw water flow which then enters the adsorber and flows through the fixed bed. In the process, the colorant adsorbs on the activated carbon. To remove any remaining colorant from the water, the water then flows through a second adsorber (safety adsorber). The treated water is returned into the feed line of the first adsorber, where the colorant is added in again. This creates a closed water circuit.
Sampling points are arranged so that breakthrough curves and concentration profiles can be recorded. The flow rate, temperature and pressures are continuously recorded. Methylene blue can be used as the colorant, for example.
