The hydrodynamics and mass transfer behaviour of the new vibrating valve plate is presented with correlations for column design; several industrial applications are also considered. Investigations were carried out in a pilot plant with different vibrating valve plates and conventional plates under identical experimental conditions. The results of hydrodynamics and mass transfer measurements on 24 plates were compared and discussed. The high mass transfer rate, the low investment and operating costs, the corrosion and heat resistance make the vibrating valve plate attractive to gas washing and to air cleaning in environmental protection.
