Solutions for Optimal Flow

Standard Inlet Flow Conditioning Solutions
for Municipal Water and Wastewater Pumping

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
