Smart Elbow® deflection elbow in action
The Smart Elbow deflection elbow takes 60% less linear space than long-radius elbow layouts, virtually eliminates elbow replacement costs, improves laminar flow, practically eliminates downtime due to wear, prevents plugging, surging and cross-contamination, and vastly reduces maintenance needs.
Most readers have seen our explanation of the patented Vortex Chamber. The vortex chamber allows the formation of a slowly rotating ball of material which, instead of creating eddies or other pockets of turbulence, redirects and smooths the flow of material into its new direction without allowing it to contact the elbow wall, where friction with the product causes conventional elbows to fail.
Many have followed our links and read detailed case studies about how Smart Elbow product installations have made tremendous differences to a wide variety of customers.
But chances are you have not actually seen Smart Elbow models in action.
Here is one of several demonstration videos we have posted on our YouTube channel:
In this video, smoke flows through the HammerTek Smart Elbow deflection elbow, demonstrating the vortex action in the chamber. The vortex action in the chamber allows products to change direction by deflection, rather than impact. The HammerTek Smart Elbow deflection elbow is the only elbow on the market with a true deflection zone that successfully eliminates elbow wear.
