A technique for measuring gas holdup in a downflow bubble column with gas entrainment by a liquid jet



A technique for measuring gas holdup in a downflow bubble column with gas entrainment by a liquid jet



Journal of Fermentation & Bioengineering 68(2): 160-162



A method for measuring gas holdup in a downflow bubble column with gas entrainment is presented. This method is based on only the measurement of gas-phase pressure in a bubble separator positioned at the lower part of the column. The accuracy of the method was verified by comparing the gas holdup measured by an overflow method. The results show that the present method can possibly be used for measurement of gas holdup in this type of downflow bubble columns.
