Liquid -Gas interphase reactions use sintered spargers with tiny pores producing millions of tiny droplets increasing the mass transfer surface area of reactions. Sintered spargers increase the mass transfer surface area almost 8-10 times then a drilled pipe sparger..
Diva Envitec designs spargers with vacuum fused sintered metal tubes/plates. Static and Dynamic spargers are configured for effective sparging applications without having ant moving parts. The designs could be from a single element to manifolded multiple element system, Easy to install and very effective and efficient gas/liquid contacting solutions are designed by Diva Envitec Pvt Ltd.

The gas is dispersed as a fine mist increasing the mass transfer area – so reactions when liquid-gas interphase reactions are carried out, the increased surface area enhances the reactions.
Sintered metallurgy which is vacuum fused bringing in ductility and strength for these applications. A wide range of metallurgy spargers are constructed entirely of metal, to provide long-lasting operation even in temperature range as high as 450 Deg C under oxidizing conditions and 550 Deg C in reducing conditions. Wide range of materials including 316L , 304, stainless steel (standard), Nickel, Titanium, Monel® 400, Inconel® 600, Hastelloy® C-22/C-276/X, 321 904L etc.
