STRUCTURED PACKING BASICS

Structured packing is today widely available from a number of manufacturers. Typically the packing consists of assemblies or packs of individual corrugated, flat, or both type sheets bound together in some form, e.g. glued together. Plastic and metal are probably the most popular materials of construction employed. Vendor catalogs frequently indicate surface area, say 30 sq.ft./cu.ft, and void space, say 96 %. In practice, the actual or effective surface area can be augmented by an aggregate of sprays, bubbling, dripping, droplet splash, among others. Effective or actual surface area can be as well diminished by fouling/plugging/blocking, and unused or idle sections. 

Typical applications include evaporative cooling, biological treatment, gas cleaning, and aquaculture.
