Wedge Wire Hub laterals are designed for vessels with elliptical heads.
The header and hub laterals enable the system to collect completely to the bottom of the vessel. Header laterals are suited for flat bottom vessel distributor or collector applications. These systems can be designed to accommodate side, center, top or bottom inlet piping. Integral backwash systems can be designed for any hub or header lateral for a fast, effective and efficient cleaning of the screen. Laterals are usually connected to the hub or header with either flanges or threaded fittings. Systems are designed for effective liquid or solid retention in a wide range of applications including exchangers, clay or sand filtration, carbon towers and power plants with water systems. Our experienced engineering group designs each system to provide even distribution or collection across the entire cross-sectional area of the vessel.
