Abstract : This report describes efforts to predict breakthrough of various challenge chemicals for the Post Treatment Filter (PTF) of the Pollution Abatement System (PAS). The work consisted of evaluating breakthrough data for the DMMP/coconut shell carbon breakthrough experiments of Mahle and Buettner; fitting model parameters to selected experimental data and finding and/or developing correlations for model parameters; and comparing predicted model parameter values to fitted results. Emphasis is on early breakthrough (low concentration) because of its importance in PTF evaluation, although the entire breakthrough curve is considered.
