Monoflow question,

I have run across these a few times.

They are always on the supply side,, I was wondering how someone would go-about designing a system using them? Is this what is referred to as a "scoop tee"?

Not that I would though,,,, ;-)

    I've always called it a Scoop tee...

    And I should note that I have NEVER seen any kind of performance data on it, but haven't really looked that hard.

    They do make great air separators tho...

    In looking at the end profile, it would appear that it affects half the flow, because the diverter sticks half way through the flow path of the tee.

    I've also seen them on the inlet and the outlet of a high pressure drop fan coil unit.

    It's not so much a case of "You got what you paid for", as it is a matter of "You DIDN'T get what you DIDN'T pay for, and you're NOT going to get what you thought you were in the way of comfort". Borrowed from Heatboy.
  • I believe the true monoflow tee is B&G....

    that use the venturi principal on the return side to draw water through the emitters.  They are also used on the supply in high pressure drop applications.  B&G has published the design data for using them... I have the info but it is on paper, not computer file.

    Thanks everyone,,,

    but I would wonder if the B&G application rules apply to this type. If anyone remembers I posted a cut-away awhile ago,, here it is again.

    Talk about restriction,,, I guess if one will not work just add another?
