Koch-Glitsch was one of the first companies to introduce sheet metal structured packing to the petroleum refining and petrochemical industries. Koch-Glitsch engineers continue to be industry leaders in the design of towers to deliver the right combination of efficiency, capacity, pressure drop, and optimized energy requirements to meet customers' needs.
Structured packing provides lower pressure drop and increased capacity compared to trays and random packing. The corrugated metal sheets of structured packing are arranged in an alternating relationship to create flow channels for the vapor phase. The intersections of the corrugated sheets create mixing points for the liquid and vapor phases.
