Suction diffuser

Suction Diffuser Plus minimizes pressure drop and reduces wasted pumping energy.


The Bell & Gossett Suction Diffuser Plus minimizes pressure drop and reduces wasted pumping energy. This angle-pattern flow-straightening device uses patent-pending Flow Cone technology to eliminate recirculation zones by directing the flow completely out of the Suction Diffuser Plus and into the pump suction. In doing so, it provides ideal flow conditions for the pump by creating a more uniform velocity profile that reduces uneven stress on the pump impeller and shaft. As a result, pump efficiency is more effectively retained, pumping system energy costs are reduced, the life of the pump is extended, and increasingly stringent ASHRAE and pump energy index efficiency guidelines are addressed.
