Metal cascade mini ring is a new type of hole-type packing, the product has features such as thin wall, heat resistant, high free volume, high capacity, low resistance, high separation efficiency and so on.
Reduced Pressure drop occurs because the Cascade Mini Ring has its largest opening predominantly in the direction of the vapour/liquid flow which allows for easy passage, This reduces the pressure drop significantly.
Increased plant capacity
Increased plant capacity is the direct result of the reduction in pressure drop that Cascade Mini Rings provide, as this moves the operating point further away from the critical pressure drop point at which flooding occurs. This effect allows additional vapour/liquid handling and therefore increases plant capability.
Improved resistance to fouling
Improved resistance to fouling results from the directional positioning of the rings,(largest opening in direction of flow ) as any solids entering the packed bed are more easily flushed through the packing matrix.
Higher operational efficiency
Higher operational efficiency occurs because of the preferential orientation which ensures that in most of the ring surface are positioned vertically rather than horizontally, and this is also advantageous for mass transfer. High efficiency is dependent on as much of the available surface area as possible being effectively wetted.
