This paper presents results of a comprehensive, large scale experimental study devoted to establishing the relation between the quality of initial gas (mal)distribution, as created by common liquid collecting devices used in redistribution sections of packed columns, and the hydraulics of a structured packing bed. Both dry and wet bed experiments were conducted with air/water system under ambient conditions, using a 1.4 m ID Plexiglas column, including also high liquid loads. Additional… CONTINUE READING
