Abstract

A model for mass and heat transfer during physical gas absorption in gas-liquid bubbly medium suggested in [1] is generalized for a case of chemical absorption accompanied by heat release. Diffusion and thermal interactions between bubbles are taken in to account in the approximation of a cellular model of a bubbly medium whereby a bubbly medium is viewed as a periodic structure consisting of identical spherical cells with periodic boundary conditions at a cell boundary. Distribution of concentration of the dissolved gas, temperature distribution in liquid and rates of mass and heat transfer during nonisothermal chemical absorption of a soluble pure gas from a bubble by liquid are determined. In the limiting case of chemical absorption without heat release the derived formulas recover the expressions for isothermal chemical absorption. In the limiting case of physical absorption with heat release the derived formulas recover the expressions for nonisothermal absorption obtained in [1].
