English term or phrase: packed fractionating column
El texto es un manual sobre productos de petróleo. Aquí se habla del proceso de destilación y se enumeran los componentes del equipo necesario para llevarlo a cabo:

"[...] each refiner tailors the full assay to meet his particular needs—good lube stock, maximum motor fuel production, jet and diesel fuels, etc. The evaluation starts with a true boiling point distillation. Simply stated, this is a distillation of the crude oil under good fractionating conditions. The equipment consists of a kettle, heater, **packed fractionating column**, condenser, receiver, temperature recorders, and the necessary vacuum pump and control apparatus to permit the later stages of the distillation, to be conducted under vacuum."

Entiendo que la "fractionating column" es una "columna de fraccionamiento", pero ¿qué sería "packed"?

Muchas gracias desde ya.
