Abstract:

The Organics-Carbon Adsorbable minifilter procedure was used to recover refractory organics from treated wastewater. Ten carbon chloroform extracts were recovered with this procedure. A parallel run using pulsed versus nonpulsed carbon beds was made to compare the recovery efficiencies of the beds. Five parallel runs were made to compare the ability of activated carbon and XAD-2 macroreticular resin to concentrate trace organics. An improved recovery system was developed and evaluated this system recovered a greater organic mass per gram of carbon and per unit volume of sample than the Organics-Carbon Adsorbable minifilter and gave measurable recoveries in 24 hours.
