Water Hammer Arresters

Figure Number:  5005 - 5050
Water hammer arresters control the destructive shock of water hammer and reduce pressure in the piping system to safe levels.
Product Function:
Engineered water hammer arresters  employ a permanently sealed cushion of air or gas which absorbs the energy of water hammer and reduces pressure rise in the piping system to a safe level. Hydrotrol units correctly sized and placed at specific locations in the water piping system, will control the destructive shock of water hammer.

Lead Free Product Feature:

Lead Free Law (US Senate Bill S.3874) passed and was signed by the President on January 04, 2011 with the effective date of January 04, 2014. This Federal Law mandates the wetted surface of pipe, fixture and fittings sold for or installed in potable water applications conveying potable water for the purpose of drinking and/or cooking purposes, not contain more than 0.25% lead by weight.  Similar laws have also been passed and are already in effecti in California, Vermont, Maryland and Lousiana.
