Pulse-bed Adsorber (PBA)
the name conjuring up an image of complexity, the
Pulse-bed Adsorber (PBA), is actually relatively simple.
Instead of using a standard fixed-bed granular activated
carbon (GAC) adsorber/filter/column, requiring periodic
or batch replacement of the entire GAC bed when deemed
to be spent, the PBA replaces only the spent portion of
the bed, named a ‘pulse’, in a semi-continuous ‘pulsing’
system offers the following benefits to a fixed-bed GAC
to a 52% reduction in adsorber working volume
to a 33% reduction in installed GAC inventory
to a 6 times reduction in the number of adsorbers
above leads to a significant reduction in capital
investment. Pulse-bed technology has become the
technology of choice for large sugar and glucose
refining operations using GAC for decolourisation.
Adsorb intends to extend the application of pulse-bed
technology into the non-traditional water treatment and
effluent treatment industries.
