Hualai OEM service CY 700 metal wire mesh structured packing data sheet
Materials of Construction
The most common material used for Hualai structured column packing is SS 304L and SS 316L. However Hualai manufactures this solely based on our customers’ requirements and can also be made from other materials based on special requests. Other materials like Titanium, duplex 2205, copper, etc. are also no problem with us.
Uniform Liquid Distribution
In order to achieve even liquid distribution over the packing it is a must to have a good liquid distributor to maximize the interaction of the liquid and vapor. However if the packing height exceeds 3 meters we recommend using an intermediate liquid re-distributor as well for even flow.
Hualai wire gauze structured packing is the preferred packing in distillation service for deep vacuum and low liquid rate applications. The characteristic of lowest pressure drop per theoretical stage makes wire gauze packing the preferred device for processing specialty chemicals, pharmaceuticals and temperature-sensitive materials.
Wire gauze packing is generally used in small to medium diameter columns to achieve the maximum number of theoretical stages in the minimum column height. Because of the capillary effect, the wire mesh material provides an extremely wettable surface resulting in excellent mass transfer efficiency particularly at very low liquid rates.

①The data are based on 0.12mm wire, stainless steel material. Applicable temperature (-200—400)℃. 0.15mm and 0.17mm wire are also available.
②Metal wire mesh corrugated packing is suitable for clean gas-liquid system without solid particles or suspended solids or not easy to self-assemble.
Lower pressure drop through the column
■Lower botoms temperature for heat sensitive systems
■Higher relative volatility for diﬃcult separations
■Lower energy consumption
■Reduced foaming tendency
Higher efficiency in the same tower height
■Large number of theoretical stages required
■Reduced reflux requirement
■Reduced vessel diameter
■Increased operating rates
Excellent liquid spreading characteristics
■Oﬀshore applications subject to permanent tilt and motion
Reduced liquid hold-up
■Smaller amounts of polymer inhibitor
