Although chemical absorption
is the most commonly used separation process in petrochemical industries, this method suffers from numerous problems including: high energy demand, corrosion, and susceptibility to foaming.
AFI currently produces thermal and acoustical insulation, aqueous solution and chemical absorption
pads and flame retardancy products for horticulture, carpet underlayings, automotives, geotextiles, construction and flooring applications.
Populations that are susceptible to increased chemical absorption
following exposure are discussed as well.
The system uses a water solution of lithium chloride salt, called Kathene, that removes water vapor from the air by chemical absorption
Foundry odor abatement presents several possible control methods, including process changes or modifications, dilution with clean air, adsorption, combustion, chemical absorption
, condensation, oxidation and incineration.
It now appears, Hall says, that hair follicles and glands can play a major role in chemical absorption
through the skin, especially with those fat-seeking chemicals like BP that require metabolic alteration for penetration.
