Refinery and chemical plant operations depend heavily on distillation and separation towers. A challenge for process engineers is diagnosing liquid maldistribution problems inside packed beds that can cause severe mass transfer efficiency loss. In industrial distillation columns, common examples of the cause of liquid maldistribution are design, manufacture or installation defects of distributors as well as damage, plugging and process disturbance of packed beds.
Listen to our podcast as we discuss how Tracerco’s Tru-Grid™ Scan and PackView™ technologies can provide critical insights to verify mechanical placement of internals, as well as quantify liquid distribution and packing retention characteristics in a packed bed tower which can aid reduced turnaround times and provide major cost savings.
