Word forms: (regular plural) liquid loads
( Chemical Engineering : Distillation )
Plate columns are a good choice for use in distillation, because even with a small
liquid load the problem of liquid distribution is practically nonexistent.
The larger liquid load in the downcomer and the increased tray-pressure-drop cause the downcomer to overfill.
A liquid load is a liquid which is going into or coming out of a distillation stage.
