  • The Basic Difference Between Random And Structured Tower Packing

    Tower internals are a key player in the success of the overall operation. Tower packing is a mass of inert, solid shapes that are used for various applications in distillation, absorption columns, chemical reactors and scrubber systems. The packing allows for a greater surface area with a low bulk density for gas and liquid to make contact, which can also allow for contact in different phases. ...
