Metal Intalox Saddle Ring are a highly efficient and versatile bulk packing industrial tower packing

Metal Intalox Saddle Ring
The intalox saddle ring, also known as industry column packing, is an efficient and versatile random packing used to fill the packed tower, plate tower or rectification tower of chemical, petrochemical, gas, and environmental protection industries. It can be fabricated from materials like stainless steel, aluminum alloy, and carbon steel. Its mechanical strength and stiffness are higher than that of plastic intalox saddle, thus it can be widely applied in the towers of the distillation system, absorption system, cooling tower, and washing tower of chemical, metallurgy, coal gas, and environmental protection.
Its special structure and high void ratio make it have large flux, low-pressure drop, good anti-impaction capability, and high efficiency. It is especially suitable for towers of the rectification system under vacuum to treat thermosensitive, decomposable, polymerizable, or cookable systems.
Ceramic Intalox Saddle Ring
The ceramic intalox saddle is improved from the ceramic arc saddle, which changes both arched surfaces and makes the interior radius of curvature different. This construction overcomes the problem of nesting basically and can greatly improve the capacity and lower pressure drop than ceramic raschig ring.
Besides, this type can significantly reduce the gas-passing resistance and increase the flux of the gas in the packed bed layer. It is also a kind of high-performance packing which can be applied in both deep vacuum and high-pressure towers.
Metal Intalox Saddle Ring
Metal Intalox Saddle is a kind of versatile random packing successfully used in both small and large-diameter mass transfer towers both in deep vacuum and high-pressure towers. It is frequently used in deep vacuum towers where the low-pressure drop is crucial and in high-pressure towers where capacity significantly exceeds conventional trays.
It is a high-performance random packing which has been developed in the 1970s. It has a unique external geometry with a variety of fingers and arches that prevent entanglement and provide a large surface area to promote gas-liquid contact.
The advanced design of this random packing provides a high rate of liquid film surface renewal, producing a high mass transfer rate that leads to increased capacity and efficiency. It also features a large number of interstitial contact points, improving liquid distribution and reducing settling.
In addition, its physical shape permits maximum randomness and minimum alignment for enhanced flow. It has a high capacity and superior operation elasticity, and it can adapt to operational changes with ease.
It can reduce the vapor pressure drop in the column, which can increase the efficiency of the process and decrease energy consumption. It can also reduce foaming, which can help prolong the life of the equipment.
This type of packing is available in various sizes, which give different combinations of efficiency and pressure drop. It is also high-strength and cost-effective.
Metal Intalox Saddle can be fabricated from a wide range of metals including carbon steel, stainless steel, copper, aluminum, titanium, and zirconium, etc. It can be used in the drying tower, absorption tower, cooling tower, and scrubbing tower of chemical, metallurgy, gas, environmental protection, and many other industries.



Metal saddle rings gives the best of both the worlds in terms of performance (i.e. low-pressure drop and high efficiency). It can be effectively used in both high pressure and vacuum towers.Its monolithic construction overcomes the problem of "opening out" at the ends as can be experienced with ring shaped packings.
