Raschig rings

Pieces of tube, approximately equal in length and diameter, used in large numbers as a packed bed within columns for distillation and other chemical engineering processes. They are usually ceramic or metal and provide a large surface area within the volume of the column for interaction between liquid and gas vapors. Raschig rings are named after their inventor, the German chemist Friedrich Raschig.
