The support Cross-Partition Ring has a design similar to the well-known Raschig Ring modified with the shapes of the cross inside to increase the surface and improve the efficiency of transportation (tower packing).
In addition to its application as asupport, is one of the pioneers among the first generation of structured fillings, when these were still fillings with tidy layout resulting in an increase in efficiency and a reduction in load loss compared to its configuration Random.
Currently, they are used as transition devices between supports and random ceramic fillings.
Today, it is extensively used to support random ceramic fillings in Sulfuric Acid towers. Due to the non-flat nature of the self-supporting Domes geometry, the Cross-Partition Ring is applied above it, leveling the random elements of the filling and ensuring a good distribution of the upward gas flow.
- The random elements of the packing and ensuring a good distribution of the upward gas flow.
- Due to the non-flat nature of the Self-Supporting Domes geometry, the Cross-Partition Ring is applied just above it.
Used as a support for the stuffed bed in the drying and absorption towers, the MaxiDome® support and packing limiter favors the good distribution of the stuffed bed if combined with the Cross-Partition Rings, which makes the interface between the MaxiDome® and the random stuffing.
The MaxiGrid ™ filler and limiter is a technology widely used in processes that contain severe encrustation such as oil coking fractionation columns and furnace gas abatement towers.
