Comprehension of Effects of Intraparticle Effective Diffusivity on Simulated Moving Bed

Hong Gao

The influence of intraparticle effective diffusivity on simulated moving bed (SMB) is investigated in this work. The intraparticle effective diffusivity has significant influence on the separation process of SMB and it affects the upper and left sides of separation region of SMB in different styles. The result is explained according to the separation of binary mixture in single column in C1-C2 space. This indicates the necessity of considering the effects of intraparticle mass transfer processes for chemical engineers during their designing the operating conditions of SMB.
