CERAMIC PACKING SADDLES
APT’s ceramic products are made of chemical porcelain which provides superior performance in sulfuric acid plants to products made of chemical stoneware. Chemical porcelain has excellent chemical resistance, high mechanical strength, low iron content and low porosity. Our ceramic products are produced by China’s leading ceramics factory to our specifications.
Our products are the highest quality and include 1/2″, 3/4″, 1″, 1-1/2″, 2″ and 3″ saddles, 6″ cross partition rings and grid block supports. They have provided low pressure drop reduced breakage and high efficiency performance in many drying and absorbing towers since 1994. APT ceramic products provide any gears of excellent performance in acid plant service.
Saddles are installed randomly in a tower or scrubber for efficient performance and good liquid distribution. The saddles have round edges to resist chipping and insure long service life.
Our cross partition rings of chemical porcelain are four cell and are used to support the packing saddles above the support beams or self-supporting dome. These rings are 6″ diameter (152 mm) by 6″ high (152 mm).
For shipment, these rings are packed in cardboard cartons with 8 pieces per carton. APT grid blocks of chemical porcelain are two cell and used to support the packing saddles above the support bars.
These blocks are 8-1/2″ long X 5-3/4″ wide X 3-1/2″ high (216 mm X 146 mm X 89mm). For shipment, these blocks are packed in cardboard cartons with 4 pieces per carton.
