The patented SATURN® technology can reduce the total installed cost of new distillation columns with its combination of innovative tray designs and simple tower attachments.
When cross-flow trays are used, conventional designs use horizontal ring segments to support trays decks and vertical bolting bars to support tray downcomers. With the SATURN® technology, all of the cross-flow tray parts are supported from the horizontal ring.
SATURN® technology brings together:
- The high efficiency, high capacity, low cost, and reliability of cross-flow trays
- The simple rings of dualflow trays
