Summary
A theoretical study by Collier (1986) showed that if the shape of water adsorption isotherm on a material is between the shapes on molecular sieve 13X and silica gel, the use of this material in the desiccant dehumidifier would lower installation and operating costs of a desiccant cooling system. In order to obtain such a shape of the water adsorption isotherm, a desiccant manufacturer has prepared an adsorbent by mixing a silica gel, molecular sieve 13X, and a hydrophobic molecular sieve. The hydrophobic molecular sieve was added into the mixture to enhance the pollutant adsorption capacities of the mixture. The objective of this study was to investigate adsorption characteristics of water vapor and some selected air pollutants on this mixed-adsorbent coated aluminum foil under dynamic conditions. The breakthrough behavior of water and toluene from the mixed-adsorbent bed showed some interesting characteristics. Once these compounds broke through the bed, their concentrations at the bed outlet increased sharply to about 70% of the inlet concentration, which was followed by a plateau region, where the concentration of these compounds remained almost the same for a while. Following the plateau region, the outlet concentration slowly approached that of the inlet concentration. This phenomenon was observed at all three temperatures and humidities that were employed while studying water vapor and toluene adsorption. The breakthrough curves for 1,1,1-trichloroethane and carbon dioxide did not exhibit this behavior. The adsorption capacity of the mixed adsorbent for water vapor and individual pollutants decreased significantly when present in a mixture with other compounds compared to their pure component capacities. A mathematical model was developed to describe the adsorption of a pure compound in a packed bed adsorber. The model was then modified to predict the breakthrough of a compound from the desiccant matrix. In the model, the linear, the Langmuir, the Freundlich and the Hines et al. isotherms were used. The linear isotherm model provided the best fit of the data for these systems. The overall mass transfer coefficients for toluene, 1,1,1-trichloroethane and carbon dioxide for adsorption in the mixed adsorbent bed were found to be 40 min$\sp{-1}$, 50 min$\sp{-1}$, and 20 min$\sp{-1}$, respectively
