Reshaping Support Media with Value & Performance

Featured Product from Saint-Gobain NorPro


Denstone® support media was first introduced over 70 years ago to address needs in fixed catalyst bed applications for petrochemical, gas processing, refining and chemical plants.  The Denstone product line addresses everything from catalytic steam reformers to process dryer applications and has quickly grown to be a well-known brand and industry standard.

Saint-Gobain NorPro’s extensive range of Denstone® bed support media is the result of continual innovation and customer focus.  To complement our line of spherical support media, Denstone® deltaP® shaped media was introduced to improve your bottom line and maintain a lower pressure drop during operation.  This innovative shaped product provides processors with additional value over traditional spherical media.

Benefits of Denstone® deltaP® include –

  • Reduces media fill cost by replacing small spheres with larger shapes
  • Increases catalyst volume without modifying the vessel
  • Lowers pressure drop
  • Simplifies installation and storage
  • No catalyst migration effect
