Enpress LLC has expanded its Vortech product line—a new and innovative bottom distribution system for all filtration and softening media. The feature is now available in all 7-, 8-, 9-, 10-, 12-, 13- and 14-in. diameter vessels. The company has also expanded the Vortech to use with 1.050-in., 32-mm and 1.315-in. distributor tubes. The Vortech reduces system backwash rates by more than 30%, due to improved bed lift and mixing at lower flow rates. This system has improved softening capacities, pressure-drop characteristics and the reduction or elimination of under-bedding and channeling.
