General procedure is proposed for flow optimization inside the packing of wetted reactors by use of flow redistributors. Improvement of efficiency and life time of packing are illustrated on the example of the refining hydrogenation reactor, where the flow inside the packing in the wall region is in equilibrium with the wall flow.
