However, the supplier will not do the optimization studies that the buyer would like without receiving compensation for the additional work. In addition, it is always a good idea to know as much as possible about equipment before making a major purchase. Thus, the nonproprietary valve tray design procedure of Bolles (1976) is very useful for estimating performance. Ludwig (1997) discusses design of proprietary value trays.

Bolles’s (1976) design procedure uses the sieve tray design procedure as a basis and modifies it as necessary. One major difference between valve and sieve trays is ...
