To determine mass transfer parameters in spray columns the spray characteristics are required. A photographic technique that allows determination of these characteristics of wash oil sprayed through solid nozzles is described. Special precautions had to be taken because wash oil rendered the column walls opaque. Results are given for a specific nozzle as function of liquid and countercurrent gas flow rate.
