The mass transfer performance of different packings are compared in water deaeration columns under tilt and motion conditions. The reduction in performance with tilt is greatest for those packings performing well under vertical conditions and is more severe in tall, narrow columns. A method is proposed and tested for scaling-up the effects of tilt in a packed column based on the concept of geometric similarity. With cyclic motion about the vertical, deaeration performance can approach that in vertical operation.
