The experiment is meant to study the carbon dioxide absorption process in a packed tower mechanism column. The pressure performance of a packed column was determined experimentally. The calculations shoed that the pressure difference between the top and bottom part of the column is directly proportional to air flow rate; as the water flow rate increases, the pressure difference increases as well. However, at high water and air flow rates, the column flooding appears. The rate of carbon dioxide absorption was calculated. It was determined, that absorption increased carbon dioxide concentration by 80%.
Gas absorption is an industrial Continue reading...
