Random Packing has many applications and it been widely used in many sector of industries. As an example, it is used in the chemical, metallurgy, coal gas, environmental protection industries for gas and liquid separations in dying towers, absorption towers, cooling towers, washing towers and regeneration towers. There are some main types of random packing stated below that can be referred to find the best and suitable one that you need.
R-Ring is the simplest structure of all types of random packing. They are a cylindrical tube which usually have an equal height and diameter. R-Rings are very effective at the base of a boiling vessel to distribute the heat evenly.

The openings on the cylinder wall let the P-Ring make full use of the inner surface and improve the separating and absorbing efficiency. The flux of P-Ring improves 50% than the R-Ring but the pressure drop reduce half.

I-Ring has the shape that is similar to the saddle, however, its shapes is between the ring and saddle. It can be benefit for the liquid distribution and it can also improve the flux of gas. I-Ring has larger flux, less resistance and higher efficiency. Moreover, it has high rigid and mechanical strength, it is the most widely used type among all the random packing.
