Plastic Jaeger Tri-Packs® is a hollow spherical column packing constructed of a unique network of ribs, struts, and drip rods
Plastic Jaeger Tri-Packs® is a hollow spherical column packing constructed of a unique network of ribs, struts, and drip rods. Its geometry was totally revolutionary and unprecedented at the time of its 1978 introduction and it continues to be the packing to which all others are compared. Plastic Jaeger Tri-Packs® are distinguished from other packings by its superior geometric shape. Their spherical shape allows each element to roll into the "packed position" without forming void areas common to irregular shaped packings or those with excessive pins and appurtenances. With Jaeger Tri-Packs®, there is no need for allowances for settling and nesting is virtually impossible. The round Jaeger Tri-Packs® offers reliable and predictable loading of your tower which means reliable and predictable performance.
In addition to the superior geometric shape, an active surface area is vital to mass transfer. The unique network of ribs, struts and drip rods have proven to give the Jaeger Tri-Packs® a distinct advantage in providing excellent wetting qualities and maintaining liquid distribution through the packed bed. Some suppliers claim more surface area, but surface area alone is not an indication of performance. Excessive surface area can impede proper gas and liquid contact and always results in higher pressure drop which increases horsepower requirements and operating costs. The Jaeger Tri-Packs® offers an optimum surface area to open area ratio for which yields excellent mass transfer efficiency and reduced operating costs.
Jaeger Tri-Packs® are available in four sizes, 1", 1.25", 2", and 3.5". Jaeger Products uses only prime, virgin resins and no recycled materials are ever used. Jaeger Tri-Packs® made of polypropylene (PP) have been certified by NSF to Standard 61 for use in potable water applications. Almost any injection moldable resin is available; the most common include PP, PVC, CPVC, Kynar®, Halar®, and Teflon®. Our molding plants are located in California, Kansas and Ontario, Canada providing coverage to all parts of North America.
