Flooding is caused by the excessive flow of the upward particles mostly vapour. This may be caused by increased temperature from reboilers in the case of distillation. 

In a simple term, the forces from the particles or component moving upwards are equal or greater than the forces of the particles that supposed to flow downwards thereby leaving it up there like a baby that is raised up by the Dad. 

In distillation for instance, the vapour goes up and the liquid comes down and the cycle continues. Therefore, a situation whereby the vapour upward forces were large enough to keep the liquid from coming downwards, flooding occurs, which is a serious problem to the proper working of the process

Nice blog, I think packed column is better than plate column.It plays vital role in chemical packing and distillation column. According to my knowledge finepac is best Column Packing manufacturer in world.
