pump-expansion-joint

Pump Expansion Joints

The primary functions of expansion joints include absorbing directional thermal movements, reducing noise, and vibration.
Pump Suction Pipe Spool with Handhole Clean-out

Pump Suction Pipe Spool with Handhole Clean-out

Custom made pipe spool with a handhole clean-out to allow you to lock-out/tag-out the pump, easily open the clamp, remove our contoured plug giving access to the suction of the clogged pump.
Flow Conditioning Grid

Flow Conditioning Grids

Flow Conditioning Grids are used when upstream piping is less than ideal, and not per Hydraulic Institute guidelines.

What is Flow Conditioning?

The goal of Flow Conditioning is to achieve a predictable and desirable flow pattern in new or existing
piping that would otherwise be less than optimal.

When should you use Flow Conditioning?

Flow Conditioning is utilized when there is an absence of proper piping geometry, changes in pipe size,
or a flow direction that would cause instability, turbulence, and a non-repeatable flow profile.

What is a Flow Conditioner?

A Flow Conditioner is a device that uses straightening vanes, grids, or grates to help improve the flow
profiles in less than desirable upstream situations (i.e. Elbows, Tees, Pipe Reducers or Expanders, or less
than desired upstream pipe length) helping to reduce or eliminate swirl.

Solving Your Pump Suction Problems

90% of all pump problems are suction related
