How SMART ELBOW® Deflection Elbows Prevent Impact with the Elbow Wall

SMART ELBOW Deflection Elbows Prevents Material from Impacting the Elbow Wall

Unlike conventional "impact" elbows and "plugged-tee" elbows that rely on material impact to change direction, HammerTek's SMART ELBOW® design employs a spherical chamber that protrudes partially beyond the desired 90° or 45° pathway, causing a ball of material suspended in air to rotate in the same direction as the airstream that powers it, gently cushioning and deflecting incoming material around the bend.

By preventing impact with the elbow wall, HammerTek's SMART ELBOW® deflection elbow virtually eliminates costly elbow wear, material degradation, melting and plugging.
