|Surface Area||250 – 750 m2/m3|
|NTSM||2.2 to 5|
|Application||Very Low pressure drop and heat sensitive systems, Absorption towers.|
- Eliminates abrupt change in flow direction & premature build-up of liquid
- Provides up to 50 % higher capacity at the same NTSM compared to conventional structured packing
- Significantly lower pressure drop compared to conventional packing.
They are specially designed to use in distillation and absorption columns, as well as chemical reactors. They usually consist of thin corrugated metal plates or gauzes, designed to force fluids on complicated paths throughout the column.
Random packing uses a random distribution of small packing materials to assist in the separation process, while structured packing uses larger, fixed packing structures.
It is made from a variety of materials including Stainless steel, Nickel Based Alloys, Hastelloy, Titanium, Tantalum, Monel.
To improve separation in distillation columns packing material can be used instead of trays as it offers the advantage of a lower pressure drop across the column.
