After trying a variety of elbows, all of which failed, the Upper Occoquan Water Reclamation Plant discovered the HammerTek Smart Elbow and has been running without a blowout ever since.

Unlike conventional “impact” elbows and “plugged-tee” elbows that rely on material impact to change direction, HammerTek’s Smart Elbow design features a spherical chamber that protrudes partially beyond the desired 90° or 45° pathway.

This causes a ball of material suspended in air to rotate — in the same direction as the air stream that powers it — gently deflecting incoming material around the bend without hitting the elbow wall.
