Pressure Drop Through Packed Bed Calculator

This tool calculates the pressure drop in fluid flowing through a packed bed using Carman-Kozeny equation assuming a laminar flow.

Type the required values to get the pressure drop:

Packing length (L, m)

Sphere equivalent particle diameter of Packing (d, m)

Bed porosity (ε)

Fluid viscosity (µ, kg/ms)

Superficial velocity (U, m/s) [cross-sectional average fluid velocity]

Pressure drop (Pa)
