Overview

  • Definition of the intake flow side

  • Design specification to PFLEIDERER (constant swirl), STEPANOFF (constant speed) or own radii/surface area progression

  • Design of the volute tongue and tongue correction

  • Various cross-section forms: rectangle, trapezoidal, symmetrical/asymmetrical circle, free-form (Bezier), linesegments with radii

  • Tangential or radial diffuser with round or rectangular end cross-section

  • 3D representation
