Abstract

"The purpose of this research project was to obtain data and determine whether or not a correlation exists between tower size and the overall mass transfer coefficient for a packed tower. A constant ratio of tower diameter to packing diameter of twelve to one was maintained. Three absorption towers were used; a twelve inch diameter iron tower, a six inch diameter iron tower, and a three inch diameter glass tower. One inch, one-half inch, and one-fourth inch Raschig rings were used in the corresponding towers as packing. The system used was the absorption of acetone by water from an acetone-air mixture"--Introduction, page 1.
