Shrinking core model of demineralization of chitin isolation from shrimp shell
Department of Chemical Engineering, Universitas Riau, Pekanbaru, Indonesia
Chitin is a naturally abundant polymer and most of it was used as a surfactant and cosmetic raw materials. Chitin be able to derive from natural sources like shrimp shell waste. The aim of this research was to study the kinetic model of chitin demineralization with approach to shrinking core model (SCM) with variation of hydrochloric acid concentration. There models were used: Fluid Film Layer Diffusion, Ash Layer Diffusion and Chemical Reaction. It was began with deproteination at first with NaOH 3,5 % and continued with demineralization using hydrochloric acid at concentration 0,3 N; 0,6 N; 0,9 N and 1,2 N with variation of reaction time at 15, 30 and 15 minute. The calcium content in the product was analyzed after it was dried in the air oven. The results showed calcium concentration decrease along with increasing of hydrochloric acid concentration. It get kinetic model at concentration 0,3 N of hydrochloric acid usage with form:
with the highest value of R2 is 0,9555 and the smallest percentage error is 5,92%. Meanwhile with usage of hydrochloric acid at concentration 0,6 N; 0,9 N and 1,2 N were get kinetic model with form:
with the highest value of R2 is 0,9794.
