For the case of adsorption treatment of waste water with fixed bed, a calculation method for estimation of breakthrough curve was investigated.
As each component in waste water is unknown, the breakthrough curve and the replacing adsorption zone for each component cannot be estimated. But it seems possible to estimate the breakthrough curve with the mean adsorption characteristics based on total organic carbon concentration for a substantial adsorbable component, applying the method indicated by K. Kawazoe.
Using dyestuff synthetic waste water, these points were examined and the calculated curve nearly agreed with the experimental.
