Metal mesh corrugated packing is a type of process equipment commonly used in the chemical, petrochemical, and refining industries. It is made from thin metal sheets that are corrugated or folded into a wave-like shape, creating a high surface area for efficient gas or liquid transfer. The metal mesh provides strength and durability, while the corrugations increase the overall surface area and promote turbulence, which helps to reduce pressure drop and improve mass transfer.
Metal mesh corrugated packing is commonly used in columns, towers, and other types of vessels that are used for distillation, absorption, and other chemical processes. It can also be used as a support structure for other types of packing materials, such as ceramic or plastic packing. Due to its high strength and corrosion resistance, metal mesh corrugated packing is well suited for use in harsh operating conditions and high-temperature applications.
