Severe services grid packing
FLEXIGRID® and GLITSCH GRID® severe services grid packings are specifically designed to provide reliable operation in severe services that are susceptible to fouling, erosion, coking, and high solids content.
 

FLEXIGRID® and GLITSCH GRID® severe service grid table 

1) Relative mass transfer efficiencies are highly dependent on packing geometry (blade design and angles) and cannot be accurately predicted using relatives differences in the specific surface areas.

2) Packing weight is dependent on packing thickness and material type.

Materials of construction
Available in a wide variety of materials including:

  • Carbon steel
  • Stainless steels
  • Duplex stainless steel
  • Nickel alloys

 

FLEXIGRID® style 2

FLEXIGRID® style 2 severe services grid

FLEXIGRID® style 2 grid is optimized for:
  • Maximum capacity
  • Low liquid holdup
  • Minimum pressure drop

 

FLEXIGRID style 2 grid provides the greatest fouling resistance.

FLEXIGRID® style 3

FLEXIGRID® style 3 severe services grid

FLEXIGRID® style 3 grid improves efficiency because it has a larger projected area perpendicular to the gas flow (causing higher localized vapor velocities).
