Metal Intalox Saddles

Specific Application:

absorption, scrubbing and stripping service.


Summary:

During plant operation these rings create gas/liquid contact on easily wettable surfaces and promote the formation of droplets as the liquid cascades through the packed bed. This ensures good liquid mixing and consistent and uniform distribution. This open non-testing structure creates high efficiency and a very low pressure drop.

Typical Application

Absorption, scrubbing and stripping services

Advantage:

    A versatile packing used in distillation, absorption and other operations.

    Used in both deep vacuum and high pressure towers.

    Metal saddle is high performance random packing successfully used in mass transfer towers both small and large diameter. It is frequently used in deep vacuum towers where low pressure drop is crucial and also high pressure towers where capacity significantly exceeds conventional trays.
