Hydro sets new standard for vortex flow controls

Hydro International is launching the Hydro Brake OptimumTM, a new flow control to achieve significant construction cost savings for sustainable drainage (SuDS) projects.

Hydro sets new standard for vortex flow controls

Hydro International has dispensed with the need for a range of sizes and types and instead provides the specifier with built-in flexibility to size each unit to precisely suit the requirements of the site. In this way, considerations such as installation space constraints can be perfectly balanced against the required hydraulic performance.

By saving on surface water storage, Hydro-Brake OptimumTM promises savings in excavation costs and frees up more land for building to maximise the developers’ ROI.

New adjustable inlet plates are available to provide up to 20% alteration in the forward flow rate, to provide clients with the option of future-proofing against climate change or site-modifications.

The new Hydro-Brake OptimumTM also offers up to 20% larger clearances than other vortex flow controls leading to a reduced risk of blockage. Manufactured out of high grade Stainless Steel, Hydro-Brake OptimumTM is able to withstand the forces of even the most intense storm event without deforming.

Hydro has increased the range of time-saving installation options including, lugs, push-fit spigots, flat or curved mounting plates, penstock or slide mounts and removable units. The Hydro-Brake OptimumTM is also available pre-fitted to a purpose-built precast reinforced concrete chamber. The product is BBA and WRC accredited.

To celebrate the launch, Hydro are giving away a free iPad 3 to lucky winners of the Hydro-Brake OptimumTM game who enter the prize draw in the BuildersMerchantsJournal.net fun section. For your chance to win click here to play.
