FP-HC Packing

The FP-HC packing is the next generation structured packing which combines excellent capacity and efficiency characteristics with a lower pressure drop per theoretical stage. Similar in construction to the standard structured packing, it has a modification in its geometry of corrugation which provides the improved performance.

Key Characteristics

  • Available in both sheet metal and wire mesh
  • Eliminates abrupt change in flow direction
  • Eliminates premature build up of liquid
  • Provides up to 50 % higher capacity at the same NTSM compared to conventional structured packing
  • Significantly lower pressure drop compared to conventional packing


  • Vacuum to high pressure applications
  • Oil refineries
  • Petrochemical columns
  • Natural gas drying with glycols
  • Revamping of existing Columns Fitted with conventional structured or random packing
