ULTRA-FRAC® Technology

Expand your Capacity Not your Vessel. Before the introduction of ULTRA-FRAC® trays, appreciable capacity increases in light hydrocarbon services could be achieved only through new column construction.  With ULTRA-FRAC, existing columns can be retrofitted, resulting in significant capacity increases without the major capital expenditures and space requirements of building new columns.

ULTRA-FRAC is the ultimate tray, outperforming all other trays not only those in the KGI arsenal but also all other crossflow and counter flow trays. One-for-one change-outs of existing trays are possible for many services. ULTRA-FRAC is the next logical step on the stairway to increased capacity in existing vessels. 

WHY IS ULTRA-FRAC BETTER?
• Superior Liquid Handling: The unique operating principle of ULTRA-FRAC provides phenomenal capacity advantages above all other trays as illustrated in the graph below.

• Superior Vapor Handling: ULTRA-FRAC functions as a deentrainer. Significantly higher vapor rates can be achieved without degrading efficiency.  In fact, up to two times the vapor rate at a given liquid rate.

• Foam Suppression: Recent laboratory results demonstrated that,  at low to medium liquid rates, ULTRA-FRAC exhibits foam-suppression abilities.
