METAL SADDLE RINGS (MSR)

Equivalent to IMTP®.







Metal Saddle Rings (MSR) gives the best of both the worlds in terms of performance i.e. low-pressure drop and high efficiency. MSRs can be effectively used in both high pressure as well as vacuum towers. Some of its other advantages include large effective interfacial area, high mechanical strength (its monolithic construction overcomes the problem of "opening out" at ends as experienced in ring shaped packings) and low cost. MSRs are available in various sizes, which give different combinations of efficiency and pressure drop.



Features:

MSRs offer a 30% lower pressure drop than Pall Rings but with a lower liquid hold-up. This facilitates shorter packed bed heights. MSRs’ physical shape permits maximum randomness and minimum alignment, Advanced design gives it a high rate of liquid film surface renewal producing a high mass transfer rate, leading to a greater capacity and efficiency compared to other random packings, Large number of contact points for homogenous distribution of liquid and gas, Facilitates shorter packed bed heights.


Application:
Metal Saddle Rings offer high performance random packing, successfully used in mass transfer towers both small and large diameter. Metal Saddle Rings are also frequently used in deep vacuum towers where low pressure drop is crucial and also high pressure towers where capacity significantly exceeds conventional trays.
1) A versatile packing used in distillation, absorption etc.
2) Used in both deep vacuum and high pressure towers.


Material available:
Carbon Steel, Stainless Steel, Monel, Titanium, Aluminum and many other High Alloy and Duplex specialty metals.

METAL PALL RINGS

One of the most common and well known packings, The Metal Pall Ring is an industry standard design media developed from the Raschig Ring and is used widely in all variety of applications. By minimizing the number of contours and crevices that can cause liquid hold-up and potential entrainment, the Metal Pall Ring geometry enables high gas and liquid transfer rates. The opened cylinder walls and inward bent protrusions allow greater capacity and lower pressure drop than standard cylindrical rings. This open ring design also maintains an even distribution and resists wall-channeling tendencies. The interior and exterior contacting surfaces of the pall ring provide for an effective distribution of liquids and gasses and resist plugging, fouling and nesting. Pall rings are available in a wide range of materials.
Features:
• Capacity vs Pressure Drop
• High loading & throughput/low pressure drop
• Good liquid/gas distribution and high mass transfer efficiency.
• Versatility
• Easily wettable
• High resistance to fouling
• High temperature applications
• Mechanically robust
• Less probability of breakage
• Suitable for deeper beds.

Application:
MTL Pall Ring Packing is widely used in all kinds of separation, absorb plants, constant decompress plants, compounding ammonia plant, decarbonization , desulfuration, separation of ethylbenzene, separation of isooctane/ methylbenzene, Absorption, Aeration, Degassing, Desorption, Distillation, Stripping, Heat Recovery, Extraction, Various separation and absorption applications at atmospheric pressure and under vacuum, where a low pressure drop is critical,H2S, NH3 & SO2 Absorption & Stripping, Steam Stripping, Quench towers, Direct contact cooling.

SUPER PALL RINGS

Super Metal Pall Ring is an excellent improvment of the traditional Pall rings and is considered to be the most efficient ring type packing. At almost the same efficiency, it gives lower pressure drop than pall ring. It also increases the interfacial area available for gas-liquid contact. Its unique design incorporates strength enforcing ribs that allow for lower thickness for taller beds thus reducing procurement costs while replacing Pall rings with the same.

Features:
• Capacity vs Pressure Drop
• High loading & throughput/low pressure drop
• Good liquid/gas distribution and high mass transfer efficiency.
• Versatility
• Easily wettable
• High resistance to fouling
• High temperature applications
• Mechanically robust
