ABSTRACT
Mass transfer of copper ion between aqueous solution of copper sulfate and ion exchange resin particles was studied experimentally in fluidized and semi-fluidized beds. The beds were made of transparent acrylic resin tubes, 60mm in diameter, and the solid particle is strong cation exchange resin(Amberlyst 200C, 0.651, 0.774mm in mean diameter). The bed height, pressure drop, and exit concentration change in semi-fluidized bed were continuously measured during the experiment. The initial conversion(Xε) and mass transfer coefficients(kL) of semi-fluidized beds were 0.936 — 0.957 and 0.0624 — 0.0734(mm/s), respectively. The mass transfer coefficients in fixed, fluidized and semi-fluidized beds were 0.0681, 0.0659 and 0.0690 We have found that kL of semi-fluidized bed has shown the largest in three ones. The experimental breakthrough curves were compared with the predicted ones from the axial dispersion model for fixed, fluidized and semi-fluidized beds.
