Lafferty Terminology and Abbreviations

Lafferty Equipment manufactures hundreds of standard products and variants with countless opportunities for customization.

Many product and part names are functional descriptions that represent the principle of operation and/or included components. Abbreviations are often combined in product names and descriptions.

For example:

  • HV Foamer = High Volume Foamer
  • HVHC Foamer = High Volume, High Concentrate Foamer
  • HVHCSS Foamer = High Volume, High Concentrate, Stainless Steel Foamer

This list includes our most common abbreviations, but it is not a comprehensive list. Product overviews, key feature lists, and part diagrams typically explain abbreviations in context, but don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions.
