Mathematical Modeling of Adsorption Processes for the International Space Station Water Processor 951629
A mathematical model is presented for analysis and optimization of the adsorbents in the multifiltration beds contained in the International Space Station (ISS) water processor. The model consists of a physical properties database, an equilibrium description for single and multicomponent adsorption, and a kinetic description for adsorption beds in the water processor. The model is verified on a surrogate mixture designed to mimic the adsorption potential of the ISS shower/handwash waste stream.
