Mass transfer coefficients for arranged packings with vertical walls under gas film control
Packings with vertical walls, especially structured packings, are distinguished by their high efficiency and low pressure drop per mass transfer unit. Yet for these types of packings there is still no universal relationship for calculating gas-film-controlled mass transfer coefficients. The present work proposes such an equation. For arranged and structured packings the new equation fits the experimental data, both new results and those taken from the literature, with a mean error of 9%.
