As a follow-up to previous analysis of counterflow film and crossflow splash fill, the Lewis number is determined from experimental data for counterflow splash and crossflow film fill. The relative influence of fill type (film/splash) and flow orientation (counter/crossflow) on the Lewis number is examined in light of this more complete data set.
