Ease Measurement of Column Internal Flow
Opting for a pump instead of gravity to return liquid to a tower often makes sense
Last month, we looked at using a gravity-flow loop to measure liquid flow inside a column (“Get Some Inside Information[http://goo.gl/CTYvck]”). An often-attractive alternative uses a pump to return the total liquid draw taken from the column. The important engineering fundamentals of this system lie in the pump and control logic.
