Optimum Design of Catalytic Towers

Description: Abstract: "This paper gives an arithmetic method of computing the number of sections required in a catalytic tower to produce a given enrichment. It also tells how to calculate the enrichment of a tower with a given number of sections. The problem of the most economical design of catalytic towers is solved. Methods are given for determining the temperature, the efficiencies of catalyst beds and strippers, the relative production rate, and the water vapor-hydrogen gas ratio which give the optimum combination of operating pressure, cross sectional area, number of sections, and volume of catalyst in the tower. Simple directions as to how to make the calculations are included."
