Performance of a Magnetically Agitated Photocatalytic Reactor for Oxidation of Ersatz AES Condensate 2006-01-2084

A magnetically agitated photocatalytic reactor (MAPR) has been developed and tested as a post-processor in the past using phenol and reactive red dye to simulate these waste components, yet these components ignore factors that may hinder a photocatalytic post processor including competitive adsorption of various organic compounds and their oxidation byproducts and the demonstrated detrimental effect of inorganic compounds such as ammonium bicarbonate on photocatalytic oxidation. To assess these effects, this work looks at photocatalytic oxidation of air evaporation subsystem (AES) ersatz water while modifying the photocatalyst mass, magnetic field current and frequency to find the optimal conditions. Additionally, the magnetic photocatalyst has been characterized to observe the assembled structures formed when exposed to the magnetic field array in the MAPR and the crystallinity of the titanium dioxide coating.
