Ceramic Balls


A ceramic is an inorganic, nonmetallic[a] solid material comprising metal, nonmetal or metalloid atoms primarily held in ionic and covalent bonds. The crystallinity of ceramic materials ranges from highly oriented to semi-crystalline, and often completely amorphous (e.g., glasses).

Ceramic Balls are used as support material below catalyst for Column Internals. The Hold down material is on top of the filtering bed. The Filler material will increase the free volume for flowing fluids.
