The effectiveness of various spray absorption configurations (as shown in Fig. 1 of the paper), which are based on the new technique of "absorption in two-impinging-streams" as well as on conventional absorption techniques in a single spray, were tested by absorbing acetone from air into a water spray. The major conclusions are: (1) absorption rates of acetone into two-impinging-streams (configurations "a" and "c" in Fig. 1) are significantly higher (up to a factor of four) than absorption rates into two streams separately operated (configurations "b" and "d") under identical conditions and (2) absorption rates of acetone in two-impinging-streams are higher than in a single stream (configurations "e"-"h" in Fig. 1), but the enhancement is less pronounced than above.
