Effect of concentration asymmetry on the effectiveness of thermal-diffusion columns

  • G. D. Rabinovich


One reason (never hitherto presented) for the development of parasitic convection in thermal-diffusion columns due to concentration asymmetry around their perimeter is set out; a method is also proposed for taking this effect into consideration quantitatively when conducting this process in the liquid phase.
