GUADARRAMA, Javier de J  and  CHAVEZ, Rosa-Hilda. Procedure to Determine the Geometric Area of Structured Packing. Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2006, vol.17, n.4, pp.77-80. ISSN 0718-0764.

The paper presents the development of a procedure to determine the geometrical area of high efficiency liquid gas contactor named structured packing materials made of gauze (number 60) i.e., ININ60 and Sulzer BX. The total area available per packed volume for the gas-liquid contact is determined by multiplying the length of the circumference of the wires by its length, minus the wires contacting area. The average deviation between the presented results and previously reported is 4.5%. This procedure is reliable and useful for this type of material.

Keywords : structured packing; geometrical area; gas-liquid contact; gauze.
