Retractable Chemical Injectors
Retractable injectors allow the injection quill to be inserted or removed while the system remains under pressure. Can be used where there will be no method of shutting down the pressurized line. The use of this removable injection quill improves injection and diffusion and allow for injecting corrosive chemicals into a pipeline without damaging the pipe or threaded port at the injection point. By injecting into the center stream of the pipe, the turbulent, higher pipe velocity improves chemical dispersion and results in a homogenous chemical mix.
This type of retractable injector has been known in the past as a "corporation stop injector", however high quality ball valves offer many advantages over the older style that uses a corporation stop for the shut off valve. The ball valve nipple will have a smaller gap between the quill and valve and reduce rattling due to flow turbulence in the pipeline.
Available in ¾”, 1”, 1-1/2” & 2” sizes and larger custom sizes.
All PVC removable retractable style injector
Flanged removable corporation stop style injector (all 316 SS)
We also offer a high pressure retractable injector suitable for up to 1,800 psi. Please see our High Pressure Injector page for more information.
We offer these injectors with additional accessories, such as flexible hose assemblies and check valves. Inyo Process recommends the use of external check valves on the injectors. This provides maximum versatility for the end user, and the type and material of the check valves can be better customized for the chemical application.
