Abstract

Structured packings are used to increase the surface area and promote gas-liquid contact in
many chemical processes, including carbon capture. Computational fluid dynamics and performance
prediction methods have the ability to aid the optimisation of the structured packing
designs to aid the heat and mass transfer whilst minimising the pressure drop. The present work
introduces pressure drop correlations that determine frictional pressure loss between Montz-
Pak B1-250.45 structured packing sheets based on the inclination angle and channel geometry
of the sheets. CFD simulations are carried out on the packing and are validated against published
experimental data.
