Abstract

The ion-exchange method is moderately effective for the removal of boron from solution. Boron can be removed by sorption either as H3BO3 or as B(OH)4-. The equation for the logistic curve provides a means of linearizing the breakthrough curves for ion-exchange columns. Either the bed depth service time method or the logit method can be used in evaluating pilot plant results to determine the ion exchange rate coefficient, K, and the ion exchange capacity coefficient, N.
