Abstract [en]

In various industries, specialized filters with activated carbon are used for adsorbing mercury from air-flows. MRT has eight such Activated CarbonFilters (ACFs) in one of their devices. The main purpose of research is tostudy the flow in the ACF filter and suggest a mathematical model for the complete system through which an improved design can be found.Simulation of a single ACF illustrates how the current system’s air flow does not cover the whole filter leaving part of the carbon bed unused forthe adsorption. This is validated by experimental data. A theoretical studybased on a mathematical model is made and the improved air flow pattern of a re-designed ACF is presented. An additional improvement is that byswitching inlet and outlet the usable time of the filters is prolonged.
