Absorption In Sieve Plate Column

The set up consists of a column fitted with perforated plates. Liquid is fed at the top of the column through distributor. The solute gas and air are measured separately, mixed in a mixing chamber and then passed through the perforated plates vertically upward and absorbed in liquid. All the flow rates can be independently varied to simulate different conditions. Liquid Sample can be taken out
