structured tower packing
Hualai factory has produced and deliverd more than 1,000 cubic meters of metal structured packing in the past 3 years. In a separate workshop with lines of brand new machines, we are able to make 20-30 cubic meters of high quality tower packing per working day.
Below are the main types we usually make. Each type has two styles, different in the wave clination angle to the axis, 30 degrees (X style) and 45 degrees (Y style). For example, 250Y structured packing, each wave has a 45 degrees angle to the axis, and the neighboring plates' waves are vertical to each other. We can also help make other types such as 450, 252, 452, etc. as per customer request.

I have a customer who is a senior engineer in modular refinery system. Their oil and gas processing systems are famous in Russian and Middle Asia market. They are widly used in privately onwed refinery plants and some pilot testing projects. I am lucky because he knows well about the structured packing and has in mind the type wanted. Frankly speaking, though I know some basic features of each type of the packing, and also can do some simple calculation on it, it is far away from enough to provide professional suggestions suitable for the whole system.
During the communication, everything went well except that he questioned the unit weight of our 250Y column packing, that is different from a notable manufacturer. Finally we found out the difference came from the plate thickness. The popular plate thickness for metal structured packing is now 0.1mm, while his data was based on 0.2mm plate. We can fabricate 0.2mm plate tower packing, too. If the flow media is not so corrosive, it is not necessary to choose the thicker plates with higher cost. Will you agree with me please?
