Quiz2. Dilute Gas Absorption/Daorption in Packed Columns

Date2l Janunry

2009

1. A gas stream with 5 percent (by volume) NH3 (MW = 1A in air (MW = 28.8), and a flow rate of l0 mr/min is to be scrubbed with water to lower the concentration to 0.02 percent (by votume). The system may be assumed to be isothermal at 20 oC. Calculate the value of Noc if the water flow rate is 1.25 times the minimnm. (You must detennine it graphically)

100

kmolftr of

ammoni a,

at aconcentration of 20 g NH3/100 g HzO is to be desorbed from

the liquid phase into a stream of air which contains


30oC, and the entire system

molYo ammonia. The

liquid enters at liquid should

will be maintained
of
1

at this temperature. The product

have an ammonia concentration

gNH3/100 g water, or less.

(a) What is the minimum air flow rate required for the separation.

(b) Draw the operating line for an air flow of 1.5 times the minimum air flow. What is the
volumetric flow rate of air at this condition?

(c) Determine the number of transfer units for the overall liquid phase driving force for
times the minimum air flow.

1.5

(d) If the value of k a is 5 kmol/hr, and the value of kp is 1 kmol/tr, determine the height of
packing required for the column.
