Bell & Gossett Suction Diffusers


Offer These Advantages
CENTRIFUGAL PUMP PROTECTION
DIFFUSER Provides ideal flow conditions for the pump
providing NPSH requirements are met. Diffuser orifice
cylinder serves as pump strainer with much more free
area than conventional strainers.
START-UP STRAINER A necessity for hydronic systems
and standard for suction diffusers for closed and
domestic water systems. Remove it later without losing
the protection of the larger perforations in the orifice
cylinder.
FIELD SERVICEABLE All internal parts are easily
replaced including the full length straightening vanes.
SAVES TIME No intermediate piping. Fewer joints
to make.
SAVES SPACE Eliminates long pipe entrance,
conventional strainer, pipe saddle, and floor flange.
SAVES MONEY Diffuser, strainer all in one piece.
Fewer pipe joints. Faster to install.

ELIMINATES TROUBLE Good flow conditions promote


trouble-free operation.
ANGLE BODY Provides an elbow which facilitates a
close transition between system return piping and the
system pump suction. Some NPT and flanged models
perform as reducing elbows.
