Ceramic Water Filter with Activated Carbon Core
Application ID: 78311
This example illustrates how to model the transport of different contaminants through a ceramic water filter candle with an activated carbon core. These types of water filters can be found in table top gravity filters, as well as attached to the faucet or as part of a larger reverse osmosis filter system. The tutorial shows how to set up the flow and transport equations to model different filter mechanisms. It also examines the effect of a small fracture in the ceramics part.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
- COMSOL Multiphysics® and
- either the Porous Media Flow Module, or Subsurface Flow Module
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
