Panel Disc Diffusers From SSI
By: Tom Frankel
Post Date: April 7th 2007
The tooling is nearly completed on SSI’s new Panel Disc diffuser. The first commercially available item will be a modified 12″ disc diffuser with a high efficiency membrane. The membrane has multiple layers of proprietary materials which produce ultra-fine bubbles with minimal membrane deflection and a reasonable headloss. The substrate layer remains SSI’s reliable EPDM, which continues to provide strength and check function to the product. To those clients interested in ultra high efficiency but who could previously not justify the cost of a high efficiency panel system, the Panel Disc Diffuser is likely to be an attractive alternative. Independent oxygen transfer testing will take place at ATC, SA in Barcelona in April 2007.
