Maric flow control pressure sustaining valves automatically maintain a fixed, maximum constant flow rate – and are therefore often used to save water in homes, motels and commercial buildings in the following outlets:
Domestic showers, kitchen sinks, bathroom basins and laundry troughs – saving water in the home
Controlled flow – can also prevent scolding or freezing, when someone uses too much cold or hot water
Water hammer prevention
Drinking Fountains – controlled stream prevents frustration at the drinking fountain
Toilet Cisterns -prevents the potential “continuous flush” operation if fill rate is too fast
Water Heaters – keeping flow below a pre set maximum ensures gas & electric instantaneous heaters can heat to a sufficiently hot temperature
For most domestic applications, the use of Kwyflo type pressure sustaining valves is recommended for more quiet operation.
