Hydraulic Properties of Froth Layer on a Perforated Plate

Takahashi Teruo Department of Industrial Chemistry
Miyahara Toshiro Department of Industrial Chemistry
This paper deals with the comparison of gas-liquid holdup and froth height on a perforated plate under various operational conditions such as liquid stagnant, cocurrent, countercurrent and crosscurrent gas-liquid flow system. Tendency to foam is remarkable in countercurrent and crosscurrent flow system. The crosscurrent flow system is suitable for the operation of mass transfer from the point of view of gas-liquid holdup.
