Rights accessOpen Access
The sorption of ammonium (NH4+) ion was measured in a continuous fixed-bed column via employing a granular natural zeolite (clinoptilolite). The column performances were investigated at influent flow rate of 0.22 mL/min. The experimental data were fitted to well-known sorption models, namely Thomas and Yoon–Nelson. The experimental and theoretical maximum capacity was 3.7±0.3 mg/g.
