Eccentric Reducer

Eccentric Reducer from Thomas Potter Ltd

All reducers, either eccentric or concentric, decrease the effective size of the pipe.

With smaller crosssectional area there is increased frictional resistance to the flowing material and an increase system pressure.

The eccentric reducer has the reducing outlet end off center.

This reducer is harder to manufacture than the concentric reducer and costs more.

One advantage over the concentric reducer is that can be hung or suspended flush against a flat ceilling or wall.

This lends greater support to the piping system and often reduces the required space.

When used in horizontal piping systems with the straight side up, it acts as a trap for foreign material.

When installed straight side down, it prevents trapping of foreign material.
