Koch-Glitsch has developed a number of mechanical features
to simplify the installation of trays under different circumstances.FLEXILOCK® tray construction
is a patented tray joint from Koch-Glitsch that allows rapid installation of trays. By eliminating the requirement for hardware between adjacent tray panels, it can provide error-free deck installation and dramatically reduce installation time. FLEXILOCK tray construction can be used to strengthen joint and uplift tolerance and cancel vibration-induced panel shifting.OMNI-FIT® technology
is a set of mechanical engineering designs that can facilitate column revamps and provide performance improvements. The innovative tray designs can minimize or eliminate welding on an existing tower to minimize turnaround time and avoid heat treatment for stress relieved vessels.HORIZON® technology
is a set of mechanical construction techniques developed specifically for in-shop installation of trays with the vessel in the horizontal position.SATURN® technology
is a patented technology that can be used to reduce the total installed cost of new distillation columns, especially those with multi-pass crossflow trays, with its combination of innovative tray designs and simplified tower attachments.
The design of SPEED-WAY manways
makes it easy to add quick opening manways without replacing existing trays. The manways provide the ability to tunnel through a column on a routine basis and inspect and clean quickly during turnarounds.
