Metal Intallox Saddle

Product No: TPU®-MIS

metal intalox saddle ring, imtp tower packing

Metal Intallox Saddle Rings or metal saddle (Equivalent to Koch INTALOX SADDLES, IMTP Tower Packing) gives the best of both the worlds in terms of performance i.e. low-pressure drop and high efficiency Metal Saddle Rings can be effectively used in both high pressure as well as vacuum towers. Some of its other advantages include large effective interfacial area, high mechanical strength (its monolithic construction overcomes the problem of "opening out" at ends as experienced in ring shaped packings) and low cost. Metal Intallox Saddle Ring or metal saddle is available in various sizes, which give different combinations of efficiency and pressure drop. 

Metal Saddle Rings offer a 30% lower pressure drop than Pall Rings but with a lower liquid hold-up. This facilitates shorter packed bed heights. Metal Saddle Rings’ physical shape permits maximum randomness and minimum alignment, Advanced design gives it (Metal Saddle Ring) a high rate of liquid film surface renewal producing a high mass transfer rate, leading to a greater capacity and efficiency compared to other random packings, Large number of contact points for homogenous distribution of liquid and gas, Facilitates shorter packed bed heights.


Metal Intallox Saddle Ring (Metal Saddle Ring) is high performance random packing, successfully used in mass transfer towers both small and large diameter. Metal Intalloxs Saddle Rings (Metal Saddles Ring) is also frequently used in deep vacuum towers where low pressure drop is crucial and also high pressure towers where capacity significantly exceeds conventional trays.

v  A versatile packing used in distillation, absorption etc.

v  Used in both deep vacuum and high pressure towers.

Material available:

Metal Intalloxs Saddle Ring  (Metal Saddles Rings) can be fabricated from a variety of metals like Carbon steel, Stainless steel, Copper, Aluminum, Bronze, Hastelloy, Titanium and Zirconium.
