Decolourization in an IBC tank using the ProRBR IBC add-on

The SpinChem® RBR S5 was used to remove methylene blue in an IBC tank using the ProRBR IBC add-on, operating at 150 rpm. The image shows the normalized absorbance over time, where 95% of the initial concentration of methylene blue was adsorbed by Purolite® NRW1160 in 138 minutes.

    Conditions: Adsorption of methylene blue (3 g, 5 mg/L) onto Purolite® NRW1160 (4.2 L) placed in a SpinChem® S5 RBR operated at 147 rpm. The SpinChem® S5 RBR was placed within a 600 L IBC tank, using the ProRBR IBC add-on, where the tank was filled with water. The data was acquired using a UV-VIS spectrophotometer.
