Packing Efficiency Data
1010302Packing Efficiency DataCurrently, interpolation of experimental HETP data is the most reliable means of obtaining packed-tower design HETPs. Due to our poor understanding of packing hydraulics and mass transfer, rules of thumb outperform theoretical models, while data interpolation outperforms both (Secs. 9.1.4 to 9.1.6).Eckert (6) was first to tabulate HETP data in a format suitable for interpolation. Vital, Grossel, and Olsen (65) recommended such data over p…
