Chemical Engineers' Handbook
- Perry, Robert H, Chilton, Cecil H
Almost every sugar factory has facilities for cooling injection water. This service is an extremely exacting one and the majority of operators will at some time or another have experienced difficulties in this regard. This paper provides some guidelines that will be of assistance in selecting tower internals, more particularly in respect of configuration and the types of material to use. The question of performance guarantees is also discussed. Test results and experiences, covering a variety of packings, are presented, together with comment on methods of evaluation.
