convert from ppmv to ppmw in gas mixture

dear gents
i would like to know how to convert ppmv to ppmw in gas mixture or any book talking about that equation

RE: convert from ppmv to ppmw in gas mixture

PPMV in gases is the same a parts per million of moles.  Multiply the componets in the gas stream by their molecular wt.  This will give grams (or pounds or weight whatever your point of view is).  Sum up all the weights and get the mass.  Take each componet mass divided by total mass to get coponet fraction including ppm wt.

OR  take the total stream average mole wt and get the total mass of the stream (you can also use spgr).  Then take the mole wt of the componet that you want to find ppmwt and multiply by its mole wt.  Divide the compnet mass by the total mass of the stream.  This is an estimate and works very well for ppm conversion.

RE: convert from ppmv to ppmw in gas mixture

dear gents
i would like to know what is the range of turndown ratio for absorber, because normal feed gas rate for a liquefied gas plant is about 700KNm/h3 with amine circualation about 90 M3/h but on start up we have always off-spec co2 in the gas (grater than 100 ppm )that happens with 125 KNm3/h start up feed, absorper is trayed one 20 bubble cap trays

White Paper - Guide to Integrate Large-Format Additive
As with any new technology, getting into large-format 3D printing begins with investigation. The first question may be a simple one: what does “large-format” mean? For 3D printers, “large” is a relative term. Many extrusion-based (FFF) 3D printers are referred to as desktop machines, because they fit on table space. Some of these have very respectable build volumes – but when it comes to “large-format,” the machines will need their own dedicated floor space. Large-format 3D printers have significant build volumes and are most often found in professional settings, like manufacturing facilities and R&D centers. Download Now
eBook - Efficient and Effective Production Support with 3D Printed Jigs and Fixtures
Jigs and fixtures offer manufacturers a reliable process for delivering accurate, high-quality outcomes, whether for a specific part or feature, or for consistency across multiples of parts. Although the methodologies and materials for producing jigs and fixtures have evolved beyond the conventional metal tooling of years past, their position as a manufacturing staple remains constant due to the benefits they offer.
