In this article, the overall methodology used to determine the working flow-rates of a true moving bed (TMB) processing langmuirian isotherms compounds is explained. Then it is applied to different ternary configurations (4+4, 5+4, 8 or 9 zones TMB) in order to characterize their performances. Finally the results obtained on all the configurations are compared on a given example. This comparison allows the choice of the more suitable configuration to be used for a given set of compounds.
