The adsorption of phenol, p-chlorophenol and mercuric ions onto activated carbon in fixed beds has been studied. The effects of process variables such as bed height and residence have been studied. The results have been used to predict optimum conditions for the systems based on the C exhaustion rate and the empty bed residence time (EBRT).
