ESP Plastic - reducing drag, maximizing mass transfer
Our ESP range also includes plastic packing that retains the basic slotted ring heritage, with an open skeletal structure, typical of high performance thermoplastic random packing.
Or you could choose an enhanced version, designed to maximise available surface and mechanical strength.
It's conical shape is proven to reduce drag, resulting in lower pressure drop whilst increasing accessibility to the inner surface. All designed to achieve higher mass transfer efficiency. Clients value the quality promise inherent in the ESP brand.

ESP Structured Column Packing - corrugated configurations for optimum performance
ESP structured packing is a family of packing solutions offering a wide range of corrugated sheet and surface configurations for optimum performance. ESP structured packing is manufactured in a wide range of sizes by varying the crimp density. Packing surface ranges from 50 m2/m3 (lowest efficiency, highest capacity) to 750 m2/m3 (highest efficiency, lowest capacity). The product is manufactured with two standard crimp angles:
- Styles include:
- Style R - a 45° crimp for most distillation applications
- Style S - a 60° crimp for high liquid rate applications, such as heat transfer beds
- Style HC - an optimised fine dimple pattern embossed on the surface to maximise liquid spreading and wetting ability
Type EM range uses the industry-standard embossed sheet metal design and is available with surfaces ranging from below 100 m2/m3 for high capacity applications, to over 500 m2/m3 for high efficiency applications.
Type EM is available in Style R for most distillation applications, Style S for high liquid rate applications, and our recently developed Style HC for enhanced capacity with no loss of efficiency.
Type WG uses corrugated wire gauze sheets to provide improved liquid wetting, offering enhanced separation characteristics for fine chemicals separations. It is, therefore, normally manufactured with a very high surface area (500 m2/m3 and 750 m2/m3).
Type EP is a thermoplastic version of the Type EM, for use in corrosive services.
ESP structured packing may be constructed from almost any commercial metal, including carbon steel, stainless steels (type 410, 304 & 316), duplex steels, aluminium, copper alloys, nickel alloys, titanium and zirconium.
