Due to the low pressure drop that it introduces tht structured packing is often used in the case of distillations under vacuum and of the mixtuie separation when the desired component is founded in very low concentration, for example the water, hydrogen and oxygen isotopic distillation The paper presents a model for the determination of height of transfer unit at hydrogen isotopic distillation plant with structured B7 type packing. The values of HTU calculated with the analogy model between the heat, momentum and mass transfer are compared with the experimental data.
