The design of an air stripper is based on the flow rate, type of contaminant, concentration, temperature, and effluent requirements. The major design variables are the type of packing, gas pressure drop, and air-to-water ratio. Given those design variables, environmental engineers can determine the gas and liquid loading rates, tower diameter, and packing height by using the following mass-balance equation (Noonan and Curtis 1990):
