Experimental analysis was performed in a cylindrical tube absorber which is considered to be suitable for the bubble mode. Characteristics such as concentration, temperature, and pressure were measured and they reflected the condition of absorber well. The variation of characteristics was conspicuous near the inlet region of the ammonia gas. The ammonia gas and the solution flowed cocurrently and countercurrently and the results were compared.
