SSI Equipment Announces Greater Flow Straightening on Suction Diffusers


SSI Equipment, Burlington, Ontario, Canada announces their proven line of Suction Diffusers are now available with one, three or five pipe diameters of flow straightening.

Standard units include a quick release cover for easy cleaning and a 1/8" stainless steel perforated screen with a 20 mesh liner for startup.
