An Overview of Intalox High-Performance Systems.

At Norton Chemical Process Products


Corporation, an Intalox HighPerformance System is an entire
packed tower a tower which
contains well-matched components
for optimal distillation, absorption or
stripping performance. We call our
high-performance systems INTALOX
because this well-respected trademark represents the predictable and
reliable performance of thousands of
Norton-packed towers in service
worldwide.
In every Intalox High-Performance
System, you will find a superior
Norton tower packing and a carefully
selected liquid and/or vapor distributor, engineered to assure specific
distribution levels.

IMTP Packing Performance.

IMTP packing is applicable in as


broad a range of services as any
mass transfer device. It is heavily used
in distillation towers from deep
vacuum towers, where its low pressure drop is crucial, to high-pressure
towers, where its capacity easily surpasses that of trays. Many absorption
and stripping towers, especially those
aiming for high capacity or many
stages, rely on IMTP packing. The low
pressure drop of IMTP packing contributes to its success in heat transfer
towers, such as olefin plant quench
columns.
IMTP Packing Performance Under
Uniform Liquid and Vapor Distribution

To provide insight into the highperformance operating characteristics


of IMTP packing, consider the packing performance curve.
In a distillation system, uniform
liquid and vapor distribution causes
the HETP to be nearly independent of
liquid and vapor rates. At high vapor
rates, however, the packing exhibits a
region of improved efficiency (low
HETP) where high vapor turbulence
influences the liquid surfaces and
improves the mass transfer.
Norton defines two packing properties from a performance curve:
1. The System Base HETP of a packing, which is the flat HETP value
produced by uniform distribution.

HETP (Height Equivalent


to a Theoretical Plate)

2. The Efficient Capacity of a packing,


which is the greatest vapor rate at
which the packing still maintains the
System Base HETP.

Since Efficient Capacity is not the


same as the hydraulic capacity or

than by percent of flood.

IMTP Packing Sizes Available


IMTP packing is available in six sizes. From smallest to largest,
the sizes are numbered 15, 25, 40, 50, 60 and 70. The small
sizes exhibit the best efficiency, whereas the large sizes exhibit
the greatest capacity and lowest pressure drop.

Comparison of IMTP Packing to Other Mass Transfer Devices.

The performance of a mass transfer


device is typically measured by comparing its capacity and efficiency. An
effective device will allow a high

throughput capacity for a given level


of efficiency. In vacuum service, the
pressure drop of the device is also a
measure of its performance.

IMTP packing has greater capacity


and efficiency than trays, as illustrated by the following charts.

Conclusion:
Measured HETP values should be
equal to, or slightly above, the
System Base HETP values estimated
by the correlation. Because the
deethanizer HETP values are very
close to the correlation values, we
conclude that the deethanizers
packing is achieving the best
efficiency that can be expected.

Liquid Distribution for Intalox Systems.

Liquid Distribution Quality


Many researchers in the distillation
field have proven that uniform liquid
distribution over tower packing is
imperative for developing the full efficiency of the packing. This concept,
however, poses questions concerning
liquid distribution devices:

How can distribution uniformity or


distribution quality be analyzed to
quantify the degree of uniformity?

What degree of uniformity is required


for a commercial packed tower to
perform satisfactorily?

Typical Packed Tower Layout

Norton has developed a distributor


rating system* for quantifying distribution uniformity. We rate distribution
quality as a percentage, where 100%
quality indicates ideal uniform distribution and 0% indicates a significant
portion of packing is receiving no
liquid at all.
The significance of Nortons
distribution quality rating system is
that the rating correlates to tower
performance.
Norton has found that towers with
deep beds of high-efficiency packing
are sensitive to liquid distribution quality. Conversely, towers with shallow
beds of traditional packing are less
sensitive to distribution quality.

presented in the paper, Liquid and Gas

Towers, at the 36th Canadian Chemical

The paper was also published in CPP
Edition Europe, August, 1987.

11
When is distribution quality important?

From Nortons quantitative distributor


rating system, Norton defines two categories of liquid distributors:
Norton Intalox Distributors
Traditional Distributors

90-100% quality
generally 30-85% quality

Norton Intalox distributors are


engineered for

The effect of liquid distribution quality on tower


performance is shown by this correlation:

High purity product distillation


services

20

Distillation services operating


close to minimum reflux

18

Heat transfer services with close


temperature approach

16

Services with high stage count


per bed

Norton traditional distributors are


designed for towers where fewer
stages are required, or where
achieving the System Base HETP
of the packing is not critical. In
these towers, a small amount of
extra packing permits the use
of a less expensive traditional
distributor.
Norton Tower Internals Guide
(TIG-1) presents a complete discussion of liquid distribution as well as a
complete summary of available liquid
and vapor distribution equipment.

Norton Services.

In addition to its high-quality


products, Norton offers a range of
services and technical expertise to its
customers.
Software Available.
Norton has developed two software
packages for its customers: the
Packed Tower Design Program and
the Tower Internals Guide and
Selection Software Program.
The Packed Tower Design Program
helps customers size their tower and
select the proper packing for optimal
tower performance. The program calculates pressure drop, efficiency and
capacity of Norton various packings
and provides data on liquid hold-up.
The 50-page Tower Internals Guide
brochure (TIG-1) features model
descriptions and application recommendations for a wide range of
Norton mass transfer products. Each
description includes the models available materials of construction and
optional features. The Tower Internals
Selection Software Program allows
the user to determine the appropriate
equipment based on application
requirements. The program prompts
the user to enter application data
including tower diameter, temperature, liquid and/or gas flow rates,
turndown ratio and fouling tendency.
Given these characteristics, the program specifies equipment for optimal
performance.

Pilot Plant.
Nortons pilot plant distillation
columns located in Ohio are available
for testing with customer-supplied
test systems. These towers provide
information on packing efficiency,
capacity and pressure drop in the
customers specific system. Nortons
387 mm (15.25 in.) ID column can
hold up to 6 m (20 ft) of random
packing, structured packing or cartridge trays. This tower is constructed
of 316L stainless steel and is rated for
full vacuum to 400 psia. Norton also
offers the use of its 762 mm (30 in.)
atmospheric absorber/stripper tower
of 304 stainless steel.

Distributor Test Stands.


In its U.S. and European manufacturing locations, Norton provides flow
demonstrations of finished liquid
distributors up to 10 m (33 ft) in
diameter. Distributors are tested with
circulating water with flow rates up to
910 m3/h (4,000 gpm). Individual distribution points or sets of distribution
points can be metered to assure all
points or areas are flowing within
specification. Whenever possible, the
tests employ the finished liquid feed
pipe as well as the distributor. These
tests provide final assurance that customer needs and Norton claims of
distribution quality have been met in
the finished product.

Installation Services.
Norton provides field consultants to
assist customers with the installation
of Norton trays and packings anywhere in the world. Many customers
have averted major problems and
saved significant time by requesting
on-site supervision of their projects.
In the U.S., Norton Process Services,
Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of
Norton Chemical Process Products
Corporation, offers full-service contracting for tower modifications and
internal equipment installation.

Scanning Services.
Norton Tower SolutionsSM Scanning
Analysis provides gamma scans of
operating towers and interpretation of
the results. A Tower Solutions scan
can diagnose problems that cannot
be seen when the tower is not
operating. A scan is an effective tool
to diagnose problems and prepare
solutions in advance of a shutdown
for repairs or modification.
