|Abstract: ||A new kind of packing is proposed for use in vacuum distillation. The packing consists of circular disks with holes at the center, which are placed at equal distances on vertical rods. The liquid descending the packing is slowed down, mixed and spread on each layer of discs, while the gas flows up in a zigzag way. Preliminary experimental results have been obtained in a pilot size distillation column though not yet under vacuum. These show that, at atmospheric pressure, pressure drop and mass transfer efficiency of the packing are better than for conventional packings and comparable to those for other modern packing types at low vapor rates.|
