A parameter characterizing the geometry of expanded metal. I. A general mass transfer correlation for flow-by electrodes of expanded metal and wire cloth

  • S. Piovano
  • U. Böhm


A dimensionless parameter characterizing the geometry of expanded metal is presented and successfully applied in the correlation of mass transfer results obtained by other authors with flow-by electrodes of this material. The geometric term seems to apply also to nets arranged parallel to the flow.
