Pressure drop of single phase flow through raschig ring type tower packings: Effect of hole size

Authors


Abstract

The effects of hole size of the cylindrical tower packing on pressure drop of single phase flow were investigated. It was shown that the hole size had a profound effect on the correlation of pressure drop data. This was attributed to the difference in the characteristics of the spaces inside and outside the packing units and to the interlocking of the packing units in the beds.
