Modification corrects uneven water flow

A cost-effective modification to extruders corrects problems of one-sided water-cooling flow, which can damage heaters. Even-Flow eliminates siphon effects that occur during low cooling demand at a T plumbing valve where water flow is split to left and right heater halves. Here, if one side initially gets slightly more than half of the water flow, the imbalance is self amplified. Even-Flow, positioned at a critical point in the piping arrangement, utilizes mechanical flow control devices to create equal distribution.
