High Quality Protection for Pumps:
Directly mounted to the inlet side of the pump, Titan’s Suction Diffuser Strainer is crucial for protecting expensive pumps. Serving as a strainer, it prevents unwanted debris from entering pump. It also helps to increase the service life of the pump as the straightening vanes on the outlet side of the diffuser help to smooth turbulent flow before it enters the pump. An optional magnetic insert that attracts metallic particles is also available. The suction diffuser has cast in supporting pads that fit standard support feet so an additional pipe saddle is not necessary.
Energy Efficient and Economical Design:
Titan’s Suction Diffuser takes the place of a strainer, reducing elbow, and an entrance pipe. In addition to these specific parts, using the suction diffuser reduces the amount of piping, welds, and bolts required in a traditional pump set-up. Not only is it economical as far as the initial investment, but time and money are saved on installation and servicing. The suction diffuser's minimal head loss, as a result of its large open area ratio, can yield savings in energy costs for many years. Straightening vanes on the outlet side of the diffuser help to maintain a smooth flow throughout the piping system decreasing pressure loss.
Easy to Service:
The suction diffuser comes with a convenient mesh start-up screen that can be removed after its initial introductory period, thus two screens are not necessary. Quick open knobs minimize down time while servicing and provide easy access to the strainer. The standard NPT plug can be replaced with an optional blow down valve for easy cleaning.
