MTL Structured packing is particularly useful in many refinery
services where random or other structured packing will coke
or foul, potentially causing premature shutdowns. The all-welded
construction provides a strong assembly that can withstand
the rigorous conditions often found in both refinery and petrochemical
MTL structured packing is constructed in modules. The vertical
blades of the packing are fixed in position with welded cross
members. During installation of either style, each successive
layer of the grid packing is rotated 45 degrees to the previous
layer. This specific orientation eliminates horizontal planes
where liquid and/or solids can collect. The Style 3 packing
has a greater projected area perpendicular to the gas flow
causing higher localized vapor velocities, effectively providing
MTL structured packing is developed primarily for severe services
which are susceptible to fouling, erosion, coking and high
solids content. our packing is installed in rigid modules
stacked in successive layers with a fixed orientation, which
minimizes the overall pressure drop while simultaneously increasing
tower capacity and/or efficiency.
The blades of the grid packing induce turbulent contact between
the rising vapor and descending liquid. There are two distinct
styles of structured packing. Style 2 is optimized for maximum
capacity, limited liquid holdup and minimum pressure drop.
Style 3 is optimized for improved efficiency without limiting
either capacity or fouling resistance.
MTL can fabricate grid packing from many materials to meet
Carbon Steel, Stainless Steel (410s, 304ss, 316Lss, and 317Lss),
and many High Alloy and Duplex Specialty metals.
