Theoretical relation is derived describing the mass transfer into the liquid in turbulent flow with steady velocity profile, at high Schmidt numbers Sc ≥ 103 in the concentration entrance section. Graphical dependences describing the effect of parameters of the model on mass transfer coefficients are presented and discussed. It is demonstrated that for the limiting cases the derived theoretical solution transforms into familiar relations (asymptotes).
