A pilot-scale air-stripping study evaluated the performance of numerous full-size packing materials in the removal of 11 contaminants in up to 10 flow conditions within the range encountered in practice. The overall liquid phase mass transfer coefficients (K L a) were calculated based on the concentrations within the packing (i.e., excluding end effects). For the operating conditions tested, K L a was greatly affected by the liquid loading. The volumetric air-to-water (A:W) ratio and the… CONTINUE READING
