How do we know how to select the correct nozzle product for your application? Orthos has by far more injection molding capabilities and over a million nozzle design combinations in order to provide the correct solution for your application. R&D performed in our Orthos Research Center evolves new and improved nozzle products, while others still plug-and-chug mid-20th century legacy products in a one-size-fits-all manner.

ORTHOS can utilize the block channel (flume) for the installation of an air header and create a short plenum (±12″) to minimize hydraulic profile. With a change of media design, maximum backwash rate, or trough elevation, ORTHOS can engineer a solution that provides excellent distribution, long filter runs, and effective media cleaning.

Orthos Liquid Systems, Inc., (Orthos) the leading manufacturer of nozzle-based filter underdrain systems in water/wastewater treatment, helped Washington County Water Conservancy District (WCWCD) save millions of dollars through clever engineering design during last year’s filtration upgrade at the Quail Creek Water Treatment Plant (QCWTP) in Hurricane, Utah. Without adding any new filters, the facility can now process 60 million gallons per day (MGD) versus 48 MGD previously, a throughput increase of 25%.
