Abstract

An experimental investigation was performed to determine the transient desorption characteristics of a fibrous type organic adsorbent, which was composed of the bridged complex of sodium polyacrylate as a new kind of adsorbent. The test fibrous adsorbent was packed in a cylindrical vessel, and dry air was passed through it. The experiments were conducted under various conditions of air velocity, temperature, relative humidity and vessel length. As a result, the pressure loss for the packed bed of the test fibrous adsorbent showed a similar tendency to that for the packed bed of spherical particles. The mass transfer data was correlatd by the modified Sherwood number, the Reynolds number, the Schmidt number, the ratio of desorbed water vapor mass to fibrous adsorbent mass, the nondimensional temperature and the ratio of vessel length to vessel length to fiber diamenter. Fourier number for the complection times of adsorption processes were also correlated by Reynolds number, and the ratio of desorbed water vapor mass to fibrous adsorbent mass, the nondimensional temperature and the ratio of vessel length to fiber diameter.
