Dynamic Adsorption of Noble Gases

Dwight Underhill

Nuclear Science and Engineering / Volume 144 / Number 3 / July 2003 / Pages 258-260

Technical Note

The breakthrough curves for radioactive gases passing through an adsorption bed are calculated using a modification of the Hougen-Marshall equation commonly used in chemical engineering. This model gives exp(-N) as a lower limit to the fractional reduction in activity of the gas passing through the bed, where N is the number of transfer units.
