11380Re: Brandons plate's
- May 3, 2003In the Petroleum Processing Handbook (McGraw Hill) they refer to
plates used in Brandon's still as trays. Usually they have some type
of corrugations or other design to maintain a even distribution of
vapor and eliminate channeling. To see examples of these trays
search the web for "Flexitray" by Koch Engineering and "Ripple Tray"
by Stone & Webster.
