Random and structered packings, grids

Different designs of random and structured packings, and grids are available via databases. There are not only the actual, market-driven types, but also older types for the calculation of existing columns.

Random packings

There is a large variety of random packings. In the extensive database, 200 types are stored. The geometric characteristics, calculation parameters, mostly the photo and the interactive 3D model are stored for all packing elements.

Various selectable calculation models calculate the fluid dynamics (laoding/flooding characteristic, pressure drop, holdup).

Structured packings

100 different types of structured packings are available in the database. The geometrical parameters and calculation parameters are stored accordingly.

The fluid dynamics (capacity, pressure drop, and holdup) are calculated via selectable calculation models.

Grids

Robust structures for heat and mas transfer as well as particle/droplet separation are referred to as grids. There are 15 different types available in the database. The geometrical parameters and calculation parameters as well as a photo are stored.

Selectable calculation models provide the fluid dynamics (flooding factor and pressure loss) calculated.
