Ceramic saddles is improved from berl saddles in the early 1950s , cerami intalox saddles are between the ring shape and the shape of the saddle, and therefore maintain both their advantages. This design has two different radii of curvature that provide a greater degree of randomness in the packed bed.
ceramic saddles are the frequently applied and standard ceramic random tower packing. ceramic intalox saddles ring’s ( ceramic saddle ) made from chemical porcelain, and it's fired at a very high temperature. So ceramic saddles have a high chemical resistance to acid, and its structure is conducive to the liquid gas distribution. Ceramic saddles’ cost at a relatively low cost, because it’s continuous extrusion method production way. And our ceramic intalox saddle rings product has been export to Middle East, Europe, and North America since 2002 .
Available sizes for Ceramic saddles:
Application : Ceramic saddle rings are commonly used as heat transfer and corrosive acid applications, it can be applied in RTO ( regenerative thermal oxidizers ), dring tower , tail gas scrubbers, impasse towers, absorption tower, cooling tower, scrubber, regeneration tower etc.
