abstract
This study investigates the SIFT-MS as a new and fast analysis apparatus to determine the biokinetic parameters and the porosity of a biofilter in a short period of time and to obtain more information about mass transfer resistance and reaction limitation which can occur in a bioreactor for dimethylsulfide (DMS), hexane and toluene. The Michaelis-Mentens half saturation parameter, Km = 0.028 ± 0.002 g m-3, and the maximal volumetric elimination rate, rm = 7.23 ± 0.11 g m-3 h-1, were calculated based on measurements at 35, 60 and 90 s EBRT. By using pulse injections, the porosity of the biofilter, 46.7 ± 0.8 %, could be determined online and more information could be collected about mass transfer resistance and reaction limitation. The higher the Henry coefficient, the lower the gas velocities at which mass transfer resistance occurs. The maximal removal of DMS and toluene amounted up to 781 and 73, whereas no removal of hexane was recorded for the biofilter used in this study.
