  Question

I would like to know how to size a partial combustion reactor processing methane and oxygen, as a function of the flowrate and of the pressure.

I would like you to explain to me whether I can apply the packed tower equations (Constant of Henry, L'/ G' ratio, pressure drops,diffusivities, Shulmann correlation, etc) in my design of the cooling tower?. Could you provide the correlation/equation of L/G vs KaV/L without resort to the diagram. How should I apply the value of KaV/L in my design?.
