Utilization of valuable trace components in agriculture by product such as rice bran oil is interesting to be explored. Among the valuables, oryzanol, a healthy nutrition for cardiovascular prevention, is the most promising one. Literature studies suggest that adsorption-desorption is a prospective method for oryzanol isolation. Design of commercial scale adsorption-desorption system for oryzanol needs a quantitative description of the phenomena involved. In this study, quantitative modeling of the consecutive adsorption-desorption in packed column has been proposed and verified through experimental data. The offered model takes into account the intra-particle concentration gradient in the adsorbent particle. In this model, the rate of mass transfer from the bulk of the liquid to the surface of the adsorbent particle or vice versa is expressed by film theory. The mass transfer of oryzanol from the liquid in the pore of the particle to the adjacent pore surface is assumed to be instantaneous, so solid-liquid equilibrium on the surface of the pores is always attained. For simplicity, the adsorption equilibrium model applied was coefficient distribution approach. The values of the parameters implicated in the model were obtained by curve fitting to the experimental data. It verified that the model proposed works well to quantitatively describe the consecutive adsorption-desorption of oryzanol from rice bran oil in packed column.
