Structured Glass Packing
– by Lab Society
This custom-made structured glass packing (made of borosilicate glass) is specially designed for maximum absorption. Slotted structured packing tube allows for maximum column flow rate while adding significant surface area for further fractionation of vapors.
A brand new design and approach.
The slots create “half-moon” liquid-to-vapor interfaces along the surfaces of the tube. Each slit behaves like a resting point, and each resting point allows compounds of different boiling points to re-condense on the slits. This process continues upwards through the packed column. The structured column offers increased liquid flow up through the column (as opposed to randomized packing) and it is both easy to use and clean.
70mm x 15 mm slotted was designed for the PDH-1A heads.
Introducing our all-new “tube-within-a-tube” packing.
In the spring of 2018, we introduced an entirely new form of structured glass packing material – a 70mm x 19mm slotted glass “tube-within-a-tube” that was designed specifically for our larger heads, like the LS-PDH-2, and LS-DH-20S.
The features of this new product are:
- increased slotting for even greater surface area than ever before.
- increased efficiency
- no packing retention cut outs
- and no reduced flow rate!
Note: We wrote an in-depth guide to distilling column packing, in which we break down all of the different options, their benefits and uses!
