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:
