Column With Mellacarbon Internals

04.05.2018 Sulzer has completed their CFC column internals portfolio. In addition to the CFC structured packing under the brand name Mellacarbon, the existing portfolio – mainly support systems – now contains also liquid distributors, collectors and feed pipes made of Sigrabond graphite.

Facts for Decision Makers:

  • corrosion-resistant
  • light
  • strong

Carbon and graphite products are used whenever other materials such as steel, aluminum, copper or plastic fail due to their limited material properties like for example temperature and corrosion resistance. Due to the manufacturer, the new column internals are as corrosion-resistant as graphite liquid distributors used to date, but are at the same time lighter, stronger, stiffer, more rigid and more temperature resistant than plastics and have lower cost than special metals. The connection system enables the realization of larger diameters and allows cost efficient production.
