Johnson Screens Introduces the Radial Spider Lateral System
Lateral distributors and collectors are vessel internals used in the processing of fluids across a variety of applications. The patent-pending design for the Spider Lateral builds on decades of success of other Johnson Screens header lateral systems and introduces angled arms that more closely match the curvature of the vessel head than prior lateral assemblies.
The distributor and collector pipes are designed by Johnson Screens engineers with a unique pipe hole pattern for every project, backed by Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Analysis. The pipes are engineered to maximize usable volume while ensuring an even fluid distribution across the media beds and minimizing the pressure drop of the assemblies.
The Spider Lateral reflects Johnson Screens‘ commitment to meeting the unique challenges and specifications of every customer and project. Our products are fabricated to withstand highly corrosive environments from a range of materials including 304, 316L, 2205 Duplex, 2507 Super Duplex, C276 Hatelloy®, Inconel® 625, and more. With our industrial knowledge and engineering expertise, the Spider Lateral is an optimized solution for every application.
