Abstract

Empirical and theoretical correlations, published since 1940 are reported which predict liquid film mass transfer coefficients in packed columns. Brief comments on the usefulness of the equations are given together with the range of operating variables, where available. Dimensional constants in the empirical correlations have been recalculated for the cases where the original values were not in SI units. Copyright © 1983 Canadian Society for Chemical Engineering
