CONSTANTIN SORIN ION, MIHAELA BOMBOS, GABRIEL VASILIEVICI, CASEN PANAITESCU, RALUCA DRAGOMIR FUELS DESULPHURIZATION BY ADSORPTION ON BLASTING GRIT Desulphurization by reactive adsorption was studied on sand abrasive blasting grit/ bentonite. The adsorbent was characterized by determining the composition, adsorption isotherms, specific surface area, pore volume and average pore diameter. Adsorption experiments were performed in continuous system at 260…300oC, 25 atm and volume hourly space velocities of 1-2 h-1. The efficiency of adsorption was evaluated at desulphurization of a synthetic reaction mixture and a catalytic cracking gas oil.
