Some solids are usually present even in 'clean systems' because of corrosion products, especially after maintenance shutdowns, when rust and debris can remain in the tower. The tower shell metallurgy should be adequate to prevent formation of scale or corrosion products that can plug distributors.

SNHs can also handle slurries but their application is limited to heat transfer.
