What is Absorption Operation ?
Absorption is a physical separation process where one or more components are removed from a gas/vapor stream by a liquid stream. In industrial applications the liquid and vapor streams can have co-current or countercurrent flows. Absorption is usually carried out in either a packed or trayed column. The variables and design considerations for Absorbers are many. Among them are the entering conditions, the degree of recovery of the solute needed, the choice of the Absorbing agent and its flow, the operating conditions, the number of stages, the heat effects, and the type and size of the equipment.
How to Calculate Murphree Tray Efficiency of Absorption Operation?
Murphree Tray Efficiency of Absorption Operation calculator uses Murphree Efficiency of Absorption Column = ((Average Mole Fraction of Vapour on Nth Plate-Average Mole Fraction of Vapour at N+1 Plate)/(Average Mole Fraction at Equilibrium on Nth Plate-Average Mole Fraction of Vapour at N+1 Plate))*100 to calculate the Murphree Efficiency of Absorption Column, The Murphree Tray Efficiency of Absorption Operation formula is defined as the ratio of the actual change in vapor composition when the vapor passes through the liquid on a tray (plate) to the composition change of the vapor if it were in vapor-liquid equilibrium with the tray liquid. Murphree Efficiency of Absorption Column is denoted by E_{MG} symbol.
How to calculate Murphree Tray Efficiency of Absorption Operation using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Murphree Tray Efficiency of Absorption Operation, enter Average Mole Fraction of Vapour on Nth Plate (y_{n}), Average Mole Fraction of Vapour at N+1 Plate (y_{n+1}) & Average Mole Fraction at Equilibrium on Nth Plate (y_{n}^{*}) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Murphree Tray Efficiency of Absorption Operation calculation can be explained with given input values -> 100 = ((0.7-0.4)/(0.7-0.4))*100.
