Wiremesh Packing

Wiremesh packing has been successfully employed in the industry for more than 20 years allowing difficult separation tasks to be accomplished. They are generally used in small to medium diameter columns for separation requiring maximum number of theoretical stages in minimum column height.

Key Characteristics

  • Excellent wetting Characteristics
  • Large number of theoretical stages
  • Low overall height
  • Capillary effect of special wire mesh
  • High fractionation efficiency and capacity
  • Large number of theoretical stages


  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Fine Chemicals
  • Isomer mixtures
  • Fatty alcohols
  • Processing of specialty chemicals
  • Monomers from plastics
