Two correlations are developed (for which there is precedent in the literature) interrelating the many process variables for adequate design of a flash stage. Both correlations are based on the Colburn factor, jm, for mass transfer. These correlations were determined from experimental data obtained from American Machine and Foundry Co. (AMF) in Connecticut and another model by Baldwin-Lima Hamilton (BLH) in Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina.
