The ring-type KAPPA have been specially designed for optimum distribution of liquid on the packing. This results in better mass transfer between the liquid and the gas phase. They are particularly suitable for applications requiring low loss and a significant rate of watering.
Principle of operation
The liquid effluent waters the rings arranged in bulk, while the steam rises against the current. The rings provide an exchange surface between the two phases, allowing the transfer of material.
Installation and implementation
In a column, the packing is based on a grid-support, allowing the steam to penetrate to the base of the bed of rings by spreading the best veins in the lining fluids.
