Experimental and modeling study on production of activated carbon from pistachio shells in rotary reactor

Experimental and modeling study on production of activated carbon from pistachio shells in rotary... In this study, activated carbons were prepared by physical activation from pistachio shell with steam in a rotary reactor. Experiments were performed based on the central composite design (CCD) in DX8 software. A quadratic model for prediction of iodine number and a quadratic model for burn-off were developed using CCD in the activation process. The optimum iodine number and burn-off for physical activation were, respectively, 1,478.17 mg/g and 22.09 wt%, which showed good agreement with the experimental values. The optimum values were achieved at the activation temperature of 816.5 °C, dwell time of 40 min, and gas flow rate of 47.4 l/min. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Research on Chemical Intermediates Springer Journals

Abstract

In this study, activated carbons were prepared by physical activation from pistachio shell with steam in a rotary reactor. Experiments were performed based on the central composite design (CCD) in DX8 software. A quadratic model for prediction of iodine number and a quadratic model for burn-off were developed using CCD in the activation process. The optimum iodine number and burn-off for physical activation were, respectively, 1,478.17 mg/g and 22.09 wt%, which showed good agreement with the experimental values. The optimum values were achieved at the activation temperature of 816.5 °C, dwell time of 40 min, and gas flow rate of 47.4 l/min.
