The new 156 Lee Bender Jet is a
miniature, lightweight restrictor that incorporates multiple orifices in series
to lower fluid velocities and reduce the possibility of cavitation. Weighing
only 1.1 gm, this multi-orifice restrictor offers a 21 percent weight savings
over the 187 Bender Jet and is 17 percent smaller in diameter, resulting in a
corresponding reduction in installation boss size and weight.
Designed to meet the requirements of 5,000 psi systems, the 156 Bender Jet is
offered in eight standard Lohm rates, ranging from 1,900 to 9,500 Lohms, and is
protected with two integral safety screens for bidirectional flow capability.
