Turbine Powered Injector - 8T Series
The 8T is a high volume system typically used in pipelines or systems requiring a straight run of pipe. The entire turbine and pump assembly can be removed without disturbing piping connections. Depending on the additive ratio, the 8T can e optionally modified to handle much larger volumes of product. A full range of gear ratios and multi ratio options are available. Pipeline interface injection, anti-static additives and gasoline detergents are typical application.
COMPLETELY SELF CONTAINED UNITS
The efficient Hammonds fluid powered turbine "borrows" just enough energy from the flowing product line to do the job. No need for electricity, air or pressurized additive lines
TOTALLY UNASSISTED INJECTIONS
Complete, passive operation means they automatically operate when the rest of the system operates. No need to remember to turn the injector on or off. If it is connected to a system, it "remembers" when to run, how much to run and when to stop. The operator has nothing to remember, nothing to adjust, nothing to forget.
METERS AND PULSERS ARE NOT REQUIRED
Because our fluid motor is responsive to product flow, they require no directions, pulses or controls from outside meters. Our drivers respond smoothly to changes in flow rates, maintaining accurate injection ratios over the full range of your system's operating conditions. There are no pulsers to buy and no electrical lines to run.
INSTALLATION IS SIMPLE AND ECONOMICAL
With a Hammonds system, there is only one simple mechanical pipe connection. No wiring in hazardous conditions, no additional equipment on other parts of the system to install, no concrete work, or costly site engineering to lay out pipes, conduits, pumps and skids. In most cases, a system can be orders that will "drop in" to you existing piping, requiring very little on-site preparation.
GUARANTEED PRECISION BLENDING
Unlike some systems that inject large slugs into the product at metered intervals, the Hammonds injector continuously dispenses a precise measured rate of additive that matches the existing flow rate. There are no gaps in the injection process. Since the injection point is usually upstream of the fluid motor, thorough blending of product and additive is achieved.

Ratio Stability at Low Flows
Even if startup and shutdown flow rates are below stated minumums, unit can be calibrated to maintain overall ratios. The system will maintain ratio for total product throughput.
Unit can be installed in vertical or horizontal attitude.
No restrictions on mounting adjacent to turns, valves or other pipe fittings.
Pressure and flow rates are not significantly affected. Factory can furnish specifics.
Differential pressure at 3500 GPM=@ 5 PSI
