Liquid Distributor

Uniform dispersion of the liquid onto the packed bed or structured packing is provided by appropriately engineered liquid distributors. It is important to distribute liquid flow equally across the column area in order to secure optimal mass transfer between the phases. One important design criteria is the number of drip points in relation to the column area (= irrigation density).

Other types or special designs
on request.

In addition to the requirement for regular liquid distribution, other design considerations include:

  • pressure drop 
  • fouling resistance
  • turn down ratio
  • entrainment of droplets
  • prevention of irregular gas distribution
  • decrease of wall effect on liquid flow
