In keeping with Saint-Gobain NorPro’s tradition of ceramic innovation, we continue to offer unique solutions for bed topping media to help you get the best performance possible from your reactor.
Saint-Gobain NorPro’s Pentarings provide a substantial improvement in pressure drop when used as bed topping media in a graded bed instead of the traditional use of sphere-shaped media.
Pentarings are a dense media which allows for sufficient hold down capabilities, while having a high void fraction and increased surface area to provide a significant reduction in pressure drop.
Due to their unique shape, Pentarings have:
22% increase in void fraction over spheres
Improved flow distribution
Increased capacity for trapping large particulates
Pentarings are also offered in a variety of sizes to fit your needs.

A more traditional approach to bed topping is through the use of Denstone® media.
Denstone® deltaP® – The unique shape provides improved operating performance and cost-saving bottom line results through reduced pressure drop and fewer layers of media.
Denstone® 2000 – This media offers unmatched impact resistance, thermal shock, crush strength and survivability. This outstanding combination of properties make Denstone 2000 support media the product of choice for more severe hydroprocessing applications such as hydrocracking, or when an extra degree of reliability is required.
Denstone® 57 – The most widely used support media in the world due to its unparalleled consistency and reliability, making it the industry standard.
Denstone® 99 – Our high alumina sphere is the industry's most reliable product for applications demanding a chemically inert body with excellent thermo-mechanical shock resistance properties.
