Less Total Packing Volume Using Q-PAC

Example: 50,000 cfm odor control scrubber (H2S control) at a typical municipal waste water treatment plant.

Based upon the tower diameters determined and a 10 ft packed depth:

Packing Type Design Gas Velocity Tower Cross Sectional Area Total Packing Volume
1.5″ Saddles, 2″ Pall Rings 290 ft/min 50,000/172 = 172 ft2, 15′ diameter 1,539 ft3
3.5″ Tri-Packs 442 ft/min 50,000/442 = 113 ft2, 12′ diameter 1,130 ft3
Lantec Q-PAC 637 ft/min 50,000/637 = 78.5 ft2, 10′ diameter 785 ft3 - best choice

By using Q-PAC, volume of packing is reduced by at least 30%!
