Metal Intalox saddle rings are a type of tower packing material used in chemical process industries for gas and liquid applications. They are named after their saddle-like shape and are made of metal, such as stainless steel, carbon steel, or other alloys.
The design of metal Intalox saddle rings provides a high surface area for mass transfer while maintaining low pressure drop. They can be stacked in a packed bed column, allowing gas and liquid to flow through the void spaces between the saddles. This promotes intimate contact between the phases, allowing for efficient mass transfer and separation.
Metal Intalox saddle rings are used in a variety of applications, including absorption, distillation, stripping, and heat transfer. They are commonly used in refineries, chemical plants, petrochemical plants, and other industrial settings where separation and purification processes are required.
