I am working on design of new multipurpose solvent recovery batch distillation column.


For same I have two options:

1) Sheetmetal packing (Equivalent to sulzer Mellapak plus 452Y)

2) Wiremesh packing (Equivalent to sulzer BX)


No of theoretical stages available with above packings will be 60. (=12 mtr packed ht x 5 NTSM)


Most of the streams are non aqueous (containing 1-3% maximum water content), hence I prefer to go with sheetmetal packing instead of wiremesh for cost saving purpose.


Can anyone please help me to select from above two packing types?
