  • The simple glandless, "straight through" construction without valves, vanes or impellers, has clear advantages in handling viscous sludges liable to contain rag type or other solids which cause blockages, while the ability to impart minimal shear, combined with the high levels of volumetric accuracy when handling additives such as polyelectrolyte, is important in terms of both efficient flocculation and additive consumption.
