Concept Engineering offers flexible turbulators. Flexible or wire petal turbulators are the most efficient and cost effective turbulator type.
It is easy to fit, and also easy to remove; it can be cleaned and reused a few times; it is constructed so as to maximise turbulence while minimising pressure drop
This is achieved by twisting wire into many circular loops arranged concentrically in a ‘feather duster’ formation around a spine formed from the wire itself; this feather duster formation slants all the loops slightly in one direction
There is a hook at one end which enables for an easy pull through the tubes; as they are made from cylindrical wire, there are no sharp edges
This prevents any damage to the tubes (specially non ferrous tubes); the loops press against the tube wall in a pressure fit
The slant of the loops being in one direction it is easy to pull the turbulators in the direction of the slant for insertion but rather difficult to pull it out in the other direction; the fluid flows into the face of the loops hence pressing them against the tube wall increasing the pressure fit
As abundant measure anchors can be provided if required to further hold the turbulators in place in the face of very high pressure.
