Liquid holdup for two phase flow through solid foams bed

Authors: Anna Gancarczyk, Marcin Piątek, Mieczysław Jaroszyński

Keywords: Solid foams, two-phase flow, hydrodynamics

Abstract: The liquid holdup was determined experimentally for a trickle bed reactor with the solid foam filling. It was found that the commonly applied drainage time is too short to determine the liquid holdup properly. The liquid holdup was correlated against reactor operational parameters.
