A packed bed makeup of a perfectly spherical shape always has a void space of 40%. Void space is greater where the sphere contacts the pipe wall. I am sure that Dr. Hassan Niknafs of Saint-Gobain Hassan.Niknafs@saint-gobain.com can provide you the information you need because his company manufactures and sells balls and pellets for packed beds.
Have an insight or suggestion?
