    Adsorption and desorption of activated carbon

    The principles of activated carbon adsorption and desorption processes are crucial for the treatment of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in exhaust gases. The process involves the use of activated carbon adsorbents and catalytic combustion equipment to effectively remove pollutants in the air and meet emission standards, while also recovering organic solvents and other valuable substances.

    Activated carbon is a highly efficient adsorbent capable of capturing a wide range of organic gases, including benzene, aldehydes, alcohols and hydrocarbons. Its porous structure enables it to adsorb polar and macromolecular organic substances, as well as inorganic gases such as sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides and hydrogen sulfide. This makes activated carbon a versatile solution for treating exhaust gases containing a wide range of pollutants.

    The activated carbon adsorption and desorption process starts with exhaust gas pretreatment to remove solid particles and liquid droplets that may clog the micropores of activated carbon and reduce its adsorption activity. By ensuring that the activated carbon is free of contaminants, the process operates efficiently and effectively.

    The adsorption part of the process involves the use of stationary activated carbon boxes, which can be configured as a single, twin or three-bed system depending on the production process and adsorption performance. The device allows a continuous adsorption-desorption-regeneration process, ensuring that pollutants are always removed from the exhaust gas stream.

    Once the activated carbon reaches adsorption saturation or is close to saturation, it must be desorbed and regenerated. This involves using catalytic combustion equipment to heat activated carbon and release captured pollutants, enabling recovery of the pollutants and regeneration of the adsorbent for further use.

    In addition to removing contaminants, the desorption portion of the process also facilitates solvent recovery. The high-temperature gas mixture coming out of the desorption section is condensed and left to stand, causing the water-insoluble solvent to separate from the water layer. These recovered solvents can be poured out and reused, while the treated wastewater is discharged in compliance with environmental standards.

    The principle of activated carbon adsorption and desorption is a key factor in effectively treating waste gas containing VOCs. By leveraging the adsorption properties of activated carbon and the capabilities of catalytic combustion equipment, the process removes airborne pollutants, recovers valuable materials, and achieves emissions compliance. As environmental regulations continue to evolve, the importance of this process in waste gas treatment cannot be overstated.
