Abstract

The objectives of this paper are to visualize the bubble behavior by shadow graphic method, to examine the effect of surfactants on the bubble type absorption, and to find the optimal conditions to design highly effective compact absorber for NH3/H2O absorption system. The initial concentrations of NH3/H2O solution and the kinds and the concentrations of surfactants are considered as key parameters. By measuring the absorption rate for each condition, two effects of the addition of surfactants, the Marangoni and the barrier effect, are compared with each other. The results show that the addition of surfactant enhances the absorption performance up to 4.81 times. The experimental correlations of the effective absorption ratio for each surfactant, 2-ethyl-1-hexanol, n-octanol, and 2-octanol, are suggested within ±15, ±10, and ±10%, respectively.
