Abstract

The behavior of a vibrating column of liquid as a slurry reactor and the dependence of the mass transfer resistances on the frequency of oscillation and liquid temperature were studied. The hydrogenation of liquid acetone over Raney nickel was chosen as the model reaction. The tortuosity factor of the catalyst was determined from measurements with two different particle sizes.
