TPU Saddle Rings or metal saddle (equivalent to Koch INTALOX SADDLES/SUPER INTALOX) is high performance random packing, successfully used in mass transfer towers both small and large diameter. It is frequently used in deep vacuum towers where low pressure drop is crucial and also high pressure towers where capacity significantly exceeds conventional trays, offer a 30% lower pressure drop than Pall Rings but with a lower liquid hold-up. Metal Saddles’ physical shape permits maximum randomness and minimum alignment, Advanced design gives it 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.       

TPU Metal Saddle Ring gives the best performance in terms of i.e. low-pressure drop and high efficiency. Hence TPU 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.

TPU Metal Saddle Ring or metal saddle is available in various sizes, which give different combinations of efficiency and pressure drop.


  • A versatile packing used in distillation, absorption etc.

  • Used in both deep vacuum and high pressure towers.

Material available: Metal Saddle Ring can be fabricated from a variety of metals like Carbon steel, Stainless steel, Copper, Aluminum, Titanium, Zirconium and Special Alloys.
