The effect of non-stationary irrigation of a structured packing on distribution of flow parameters over the cross-section and height of a distillation column was studied using a controlled liquid distributor. We have determined the characteristic time of switching the valves of the liquid distributor at periodic sequential irrigation of two zones of the column cross-section, corresponding to the most effective suppression of stable large-scale maldistribution of the flow parameters in the
