Spray columns are widely used in industry as a gas-liquid contacting apparatus because of the advantages of a high transfer area per unit volume and the tow gas side resistance. For a large number of systems, mass transfer parameters are not available and an experimental determination for the system benzene/wash oil was therefore carried out. The experimental technique and design are described. The variation in mass transfer coefficient as function of gas flow rate, liquid flow rate and column height agrees with those published elsewhere.
