|Title:||SEPARATION OF L-TRYPTOPHAN PRESENT IN AN AROMATIC AMINO ACIDS MIXTURE IN A FOUR-COLUMN SIMULATED MOVING BED: EXPERIMENTAL AND SIMULATION STUDIES|
|Abstract:||An experimental and theoretical study is presented for the fractionation of L-Tryptophan (Trp) from L-phenylalanine (Phe) and L-tyrosine (Tyr). A Simulated-Moving Bed (SMB) with four-column system was tested, and the results are presented as effluent histories of the raffinate and extract ports. L-phenylalanine and L-tyrosine were recovered as major products in the raffinate, while L-Tryptophan was recovered at the extract. To simulate the L-Tryptophan separation, a general rate model was used to represent the mass transfer phenomena that occur in each individual column of the SMB, for each solute present in the multicomponent system. A hybrid method was used to solve the model. An analytic solution was used for the intra-particle concentration, and was correlated to the liquid bed concentration by Duhamel's theorem. The results from simulation are compared with the experimental data presented in this work.|
