3.16. Material balances: adsorption of benzene vapor on activated
carbon.
Activated carbon is used to recover benzene from a nitrogen-benzene from
a nitrogen-benzene vapor mixture. A nitrogen-benzene mixture at 306 K and
1 atm containing 1% benzene by volume is to be passed counter currently
at the rate of 1.0 m3/s to a moving stream of activated carbon so as to
remove 85% of the benzene from the gas in a continuous process. The
entering activated carbon contains 15 cm 3 benzene vapor (at STP) adsorbed
per gram of the carbon. The temperature and total pressure are maintained
at 306 K and 1 atm. Nitrogen is not adsorbed.

## a) Plot the equilibrium data given below as X= kg benzene / kg dry

carbon, Y= kg benzene / kg nitrogen for a total pressure of 1 atm.

## 3.28. Countercurrent versus cross flow extraction

A 1-butanol acid solution is to be extracted with water. The butanol solution
contains 4.5 wt% of acetic acid and flows at the rate of 400 kg/h. A total
water flow rate of 1005 kg/h is used. Operation is at 298 K AND 1 atm. For
practical purposes, 1-butanol and water are immiscible, At 298 K, the
equilibrium data can be represent by Y AI= 0.62XAI, where YAI is the weight
ratio of acid in the aqueous phase and X AI is the weight ratio of acid in the
organic phase.
a) If the outlet butanol stream is to contain 0.10 wt% acid, how many
equilibrium stages are required for a countercurrent cascade?
