Experimental Investigation on the Liquid Distributor Performance for the Falling Film Evaporation Process


Article Preview

In this paper, the liquid distributor performance for the falling film evaporation process was tested, and the relationship between the liquid height and flow rate were studied in the experiment. The results showed that the liquid height of liquid distributor is proportional to flow, liquid distributing hole diameter and flow, but inversely proportional to liquid distribution aperture. Overflow may be present at a high flow.
