They Provide even distribution or collection and avoid flow pressure concentrations such as dead zones, wall effects or channeling. Hub Laterals can be designed for disc head vessels enabling the system to collect completely to the bottom of the vessel. Header laterals design is also available for flat bottom vessel distributor or collector applications All systems are designed for effective liquid or solid retention in a wide range of applications including ion exchangers, clay and sand filtration applications, carbon towers and power plants with water systems.
