Metal Random Packing Hydraulic Correlations

FRI’s previous correlations for random packing capacity, holdup, and pressure drop - the TR-147 correlations, were published in 2003. The correlations were updated with the performance of packings with modern distributors and extended to include the latest generation of random packings.
 
This report TR-208, provides improved correlations for capacity, holdup, and pressure drop of random packings, using the TR-147 correlation as the basis. In the proposed correlation, the geometric specific surface area (a) variable in the TR-147 correlation is replaced with an empirically regressed effective specific surface area (ahe) that is a function of the packing type.
