SSI Equipment Announces Greater Flow Straightening on Suction Diffusers
SSI Equipment, Burlington, Ontario, Canada announces their proven line of Suction
Diffusers are now available with one, three or five pipe diameters of flow
straightening. An SSI Suction Diffuser installed in front of a fluid pump in place of a
strainer extends pump life by reducing turbulence and protecting against particles
while providing more free area than a strainer.
SSI Suction Diffusers incorporate the functions of a strainer, flow straightener,
elbow and pipe reducer in one compact unit. Standard units include a quick release
cover for easy cleaning and a 1/8" stainless steel perforated screen with a 20 mesh
liner for startup. A wide variety of optional screens, mesh liners, covers, materials
and other custom options are available. SSI Suction Diffusers are available in cast
iron configured to replace a standard 90° elbow as well as in fabricated carbon steel
or stainless steel customized to suit your installation with end connections 2" x 1-
1/4" up to 36" x 36".
