Abstract

The performance of the sorbent filter is determined by the sorbent properties, the filter design as well as the application conditions. In this study, a model based on the fundamental transport and sorption processes in sorbent-based filters is developed and numerically implemented. The model is validated by investigating the effect of different parameters, and by comparison with experimental data. It provides a useful tool for designing, selecting or maintaining sorption-based filter/air cleaner for non-industrial building applications. The analysis based on the simulation indicates that surface diffusion is significantly important.
