These distributors are commonly utilized in scrubber and stripper services with moderate-to-high liquid/vapor rates. It is not  recommended for low liquid/vapor rates or fouling systems or ones with suspended solids due to the potential for plugging of the metering orifices. Conditions which favor the use of this distributor include high vapor velocities and limited space availability. this distributor can be made in a variety of plastics and alloys.
