Ceramic Intalox Saddles

Ceramic Intalox Saddle Rings (Ceramic Saddles, Intalox Torus Ceramic Saddles, also named as Ceramic Saddle Ring) are one of the types of industrial packing.

They are made of electrotechnical ceramics and are used to fill the packed columns and other heat and mass transfer equipment with the invasive environment.

Ceramic Saddles Intalox are available to the order of sizes: 1" (25 mm), 1.5" (37 mm), 2" (50 mm), 3" (75 mm).

Intalox saddles relate to irregular acid-resistant packing. The surface of the Intalox saddle is part of the torus. Compared to Raschig rings, Intalox saddles with the same size of packed bodies have a 25% larger specific surface area and a slightly larger free volume. Saddle-backed packing has less hydraulic resistance and greater efficiency, than the Raschig rings.

The Intalox saddles are well wetted and provide greater randomness of the packing without creating the preferred paths (channels) for the fluid to flow. They are highly resistant to thermal shock or chemical attack.

Intalox Torus Saddles made of acid resistant ceramic and used as filling in drying tower, intermediate absorber, final absorber of sulfuric acid regeneration unit.

Application of Ceramic Saddles INTALOX


Ceramic Saddle INTALOX – these are half-rings curved by an arc, which belong to the type of irregular packing (Random Packing). That is, that they are randomly buried in the working chambers of the equipment and move freely during heat and mass transfer in closed containers.

Saddles do not concentrate in one place due to constantly moving fluid flows but contribute to uniform diffusion. They have high efficiency and low hydraulic resistance. Products are considered advanced filling material – they are used in the medical, chemical, food, oil-refining industries. They are used in the following equipment:

  • distillers (vacuum, under high pressure);
  • columns (distillation, stripping, drying);
  • absorbers (for example, in the production of sulfuric acid);
  • converters, extractors;
  • separators, rectifiers.

Advantages of Saddles INTALOX

Efficiency. When using ceramic packing, the productivity of technological processes increases to 25%. This is due to the special shape of the products, their smooth surface and the physics of heat transfer in the equipment itself.

Saddle-shaped packing have a large specific surface area, a larger free volume and have a relatively low hydraulic resistance.

Strength. The saddles withstand the load of 150 MPa and have acid resistance of 99%.

Ease of use. Ceramic saddles fall asleep in the working chambers, they no longer require attention.


The intensive movement of the packing together with the aggressive environment inside the equipment during technological processes reduce the risk of acid deposits on the surface of the products.

Wide scope of application. Packing saddles are used in almost all closed gas-liquid systems where diffusion, heat transfer and mass transfer processes occur.

Saddles INTALOX are manufactured with the following parameters: diameter 25 mm, 37 mm, 50 mm, 75 mm, wall thickness 3–6 mm, and free volume 73–78%.

I'm Gizem, I'm a chemical engineer. I'm interested in making ceramic stuffs as a hobby. Would you please give some explanation about my questions below;
1) If I only mix SiO2 and Fe2O3 (3:1), can i get a suitable product without using other components?
2) Can i use water as fastener? or would you suggest me another fastener?
3) At which temperature should i mix them?
Thank you for your interest, Kind Regards

Hello, Gizem. The mass of ceramic is produced by grinding and mixing with water of different components: clay, feldspar, sand, kaolin. The proportions of these materials are different percentages, depending on what and with what characteristics you need to get a ceramic mass.
Each manufacturer of ceramic mass has its own recipes and its own raw materials, which are available in its region.
There are also books on ceramics that specify the chemical composition and approximate recipes for ceramic masses.
