However, the measurement, prediction, and application of tray efficiency has been one of the most challenging aspects of tray performance - because a large number of variables effect efficiency â and moreover, the effects are correlated, varied, and sometimes counter-acting. Physical properties, liquid and vapor flow rates, and the geometry of the various elements of a tray all play a role in determining the tray efficiency.
In this talk, I will present advances in measurement and prediction of distillation tray efficiency with references to work performed at Oklahoma State University and Fractionation Research, Inc.
