Abstract

Gas-phase resistances to the vaporization of three mercury halides into atmosphere at elevated temperatures were evaluated. Lab-scale vaporization experiments for mercuric bromide, mercuric iodide and mercuric chloride were performed and the results were analyzed to evaluate gas-phase resistance to vaporization of three mercuric halides using the vaporization and condensation model. Overall mass transfer coefficients, KG for the sample mercuric halides, were in the range between 4.8×10-6 and 1.6×10-5 g-mole sec-1 cm-2 atm-1 at the temperatures from the subliming to boiling temperatures and were much smaller than interfacial mass transfer coefficients, ki. It was estimated that resistance of pure gas-phase mass transfer is much larger than that of the phase transition between condensed and gas phases. It could be therefore said that gas-phase mass transfer coefficients, kG for mercuric halides, were nearly equal to overall mass transfer coefficient, KG which could be determined as a function of temperatures.
