Lateral Systems

List Price QUOTE

Our WEDGE-FLOW lateral systems are precision engineered to maximize bed utilization and provide uniform collection and distribution patterns. We specialize in head laterals, hub laterals, and laterals custom designed to meet your specifications. We offer complete engineering assistance in the design and development of new systems as well as improving and replacing existing installations.


Hub Laterals

  • Commonly used in sand filtration, activated carbon columns, and demineralizer vessels up to 8' diameter.
  • WEDGE-FLOW laterals are often designed in a multi-tier pattern as well as angled to conform to the vessel head configuration.
  • Header Laterials

  • Designed as collectors and distributors in larger vessels.
  • Optimum systems where mid-bed or regenerant processes are employed.
  • Units are custom designed for either side or center vessel configuration.
  • Can accommodate threaded, nozzle or pad connections.
  • Custom Designed Laterals

    Our laterals are custom designed as replacements for existing installations.Exact replacement is accommodated as well as re-engineered to improve process fluid dynamics. Often, with our "Back to Basics" approach, major improvements can be realized without increasing costs. Retention, drainage patterns, and alloy selection are a few of the criteria that can result in process improvements. Careful consideration to existing internal configurations can result in avoiding unnecessary major capital expense.
