Standard Guide for Gas-Phase Adsorption Testing of Activated Carbon
|Publication Date:||10 October 1998|
|ICS Code (Chemical reagents):||71.040.30|
1.1 This guide covers the evaluation of activated carbons for gas-phase adsorption. It presents a procedure for determining the dynamic adsorption capacity, o, and critical bed depth, c, for an activated carbon used to remove a specific adsorbate from a gas stream under conditions chosen by the user.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Specific hazards statements are given in Section 8.
