A gas absorption column to handle 3630 kg/hr of a gas is being designed. Based on pressure drop, entrainment and foaming considerations, the maximum vapor velocity must not exceed 0.61 meters/sec. If the density of the vapor is 0.801 kg/m^3, what is the column diameter?
The column cross sectional area can be calculated as follows..
Area = (Vapor flow rate) / (vapor ...
The column diameter is calculated given a gas absorption rate.
