Fractionation trays are fabricated from a wide variety of materials. When corrosion is expected to be extremely low and design temperatures are not excessive, carbon steel is a logical choice because of its favorable mechanical design properties, malleability and low cost. However, since the material of construction is dictated by the process of each particular system for which the trays will be used, many different material types may be required because of unique properties which allow some materials to have resistance to corrosion and to maintain their mechanical strength at elevated temperatures.
The most common tray materials that Mapesa utilizes are listed below starting from least expensive:
