The sorption of copper and cadmium ions onto bone char in single component systems has been studied using fixed-bed column adsorbers. The effects of solution flowrate, initial metal ion concentration and bone char particle size have been studied. A film-pore diffusion model has been developed to predict the fixed-bed breakthrough curves for the two metal(More)
The process design and economic analysis of process plants to produce activated carbons from waste tires and coal have been performed. The potential range of products from each process has been considered, namely for waste tire--pyro-gas, active carbon, carbon black and pyro-oil; for coal--pyro-gas and active carbons. Sensitivity analyses have been carried(More)
The ability of bone char to adsorb three metal ions, namely, copper(II), zinc(II) and cadmium(II) ions from wastewater has been studied. Three single-component equilibrium systems and three binary equilibrium systems have been measured experimentally. The three single-component equilibrium data were analyzed using the Langmuir and the Sips equilibrium(More)
The sorption of three metal ions, namely, copper, cadmium, and zinc, onto bone char has been studied in terms of equilibrium and rate studies. Equilibrium studies have been analyzed using the Langmuir isotherm equation and the maximum sorption capacities for the metals were 0.477, 0.709, and 0.505 mmolg(-1) bone char for cadmium, copper, and zinc ions,(More)
In this paper we present a technique, called Extended-Parity Checking, for the design of error-detecting circuits for combinational logic networks. Its concept is derived from the conventional parity checking technique, which is applicable only for odd number of errors, yet it can detect errors of any degree. A structural model, called the fanoutgraph, is(More)
The sorption of cadmium and copper ions from aqueous solutions onto bone char using fixed-bed adsorbers has been studied. A film-pore diffusion model has been utilized to predict theoretical breakthrough curves, which are compared with experimental breakthrough curves by means of error analysis. The key parameters for correlating the theoretical model are(More)
