The gas-liquid interfacial area due to a laboratory perforated plate has been measured under conditions of cross flow, using the method of gas absorption accompanied by chemical reaction. An unusually wide range of gas velocities was used in the tests, with mass transfer coefficients being measured at constant heights of emulsion. The effects of the gas and liquid velocities and of the emulsion height were determined separately. Empirical correlations are proposed for prediction of the interfacial area over a wide range of gas velocities.
