Chapter 19. Introduction to Adsorption, Chromatography, and Ion Exchange

In the first 14 chapters, we looked at separation techniques such as distillation and extraction that are often operated as steady-state, equilibrium-staged separations. Exceptions were batch distillation in Chapter 9 and batch extraction in Section 13.6. In Chapter 17 we studied both batch and continuous crystallization. Outlet concentrations can be found from equilibrium calculations, but crystal size distributions required population balances. In Chapter 18 we studied membrane separations that are not operated as equilibrium processes; however, well-mixed membrane separators are analogous to flash distillation, and staged models are useful for integrating mass balances ...
