Random Packing Cuts Pressure Drop
The three-inch Flexisaddle Low Pressure Drop (LDP) random packing for chemical applications is said to be ideal for SO4 (sulfuric acid towers), SO3 (sulfite) converters, and HRS (heat recovery system) towers. It provides a 35+% lower pressure drop than alternative three-inch saddles with the same mass transfer efficiency. Plant operations savings include reduced blower operating costs, increased unit capacity and throughput, and improvements to other ancillary equipment where pressure drop savings may be applied. Constructed of acid- and corrosion-resistant Knightware ceramic, it withstands rugged handling and has an aerodynamic design and high open area limit nesting, ensuring the greatest possible flow and transfer efficiency.
