Suction diffuser line expanded
Taco has expanded its suction diffuser line, which provide maximum flow efficiency at the suction inlet of the pump while at the same time reducing space and fitting requirements.
Taco has expanded its suction diffuser line with three new sizes: 4x2.5-in., 5x3-in., and 8x5-in.. Taco's suction diffusers incorporate numerous features into one device to provide maximum flow efficiency at the suction inlet of the pump while at the same time reducing space and fitting requirements. They also eliminate the need for an equivalent length of 10 pipe diameters of straight run on the suction side of the pump. The integral cast straightening vanes ensure uniform flow to the suction inlet of the pump while the oversized body cylinder ensures minimal pressure drop. The suction diffuser's metering port allows for the monitoring of system conditions. The devices are available for 125 or 250 psi working pressures, with either flanged or grooved-flange connections.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
