FLEXERAMIC™ Structured Packing

Structured Media

FLEXERAMIC® Structured Packing is geometrically arranged corrugated sheets that offer improved operation over saddle random packing and provides greater resistance to fouling than random or monolithic packing. Our design provides high capacity, higher efficiency and lower pressure drop than any random packing and most trays that are available today. Revamp of existing packed or tray columns with structured packing from Koch Knight, LLC. offers an economical alternative to other media. FLEXERAMIC® structured packing provides plant operators increased separation efficiency and operation capacity, lower pressure drop and often significantly lower energy costs for distillation or absorption operations. Our structured packing element is manufactured from advanced ceramics for long lasting performance. FLEXERAMIC Ceramic structured packing is a market leader in structured media.

KNIGHT-CHEM® FLEXERAMIC® Ceramic Structured Packing provides the advantages of a high purity, acid resistance and nonporous grade of porcelain with the geometry of one of the most advanced ceramic packing in the world.

Capabilities:

  • Proper Mixing throughout the entire chamber.
  • Geometric construction of FLEXERAMIC®; structured packing greatly reduces channeling of both the liquid and vapor, and provides more effective contact of sulfuric acid and SO3 gas.
  • Ceramic corrugated sheets are vertically oriented in the packed column, eliminating any horizontal surfaces which create resistance to fluid flow.
  • There are over 200 installations (20+ in Sulfuric Acid).
  • Improve capacity by up to 50% over standard ceramic saddle random packing.
  • Lower pressure drop by 60% or more over standard ceramic saddle random packing.
  • Excellent resistance to plugging.
  • Improve efficiency up to 25% over standard ceramic saddle random packing.
  • Greater heat recovery in RTO applications than any random packing.

Options:

  • Ceramic
  • Glazed Ceramic
  • KNIGHT-CHEM®
  • Cordierite

Sizes: (12"x12"x12")

  • Type 28 - Higher efficiency than 1" saddles with capacity equivalent to 1-1/2" saddles
  • Type 48 - Higher efficiency than 1-1/2" saddles with capacity equivalent to 2" saddles
