Abstract

A structure for disrupting the flow of a fluid, the structure comprising: (a) a first lateral wall and a second lateral wall spaced apart from one another, yet joined, by a floor; (b) a partial turbulator extending between the first lateral wall and the second lateral wall, the turbulator extending away from the floor, the partial turbulator comprising: (i) a front surface partially extending between the first lateral wall and the second lateral wall, the front surface extending from the floor and having a segment that is angled less than forty five degrees with respect to a Y-axis extending perpendicularly from the floor, and (ii) a rear surface extending between the first lateral wall and the second lateral wall, the rear surface extending between the front surface and the floor and including an inclining portion that is angled between zero and forty-five degrees with respect to a Z-axis extending parallel to the floor, the Z-axis being perpendicular to the Y-axis; and, (c) a concavity formed into the floor that interposes the partial turbulator and at least one of the first lateral wall and the second lateral wall.
