At least there are four parameters that we want to know in sizing iron sponge units:
- Minimum diameter of iron sponge vessel
- Maximum diameter of iron sponge vessel
- Required bed height
- Quantity of iron sponge
- Bed life of iron sponge between change out
Why do we need to know minimum diameter of iron sponge vessel? Read More
