Vortex inhibitor improves performance of fire sprinklers
Balmoral Tanks has introduced a vortex inhibitor that offers ‘significant technical improvements’ over current market options. The new component complements the company’s range of water-storage tanks for fire sprinkler systems. When put to use, such tanks are designed to deliver large, fast-flowing volumes of water, and vortex inhibitors play a vital role by preventing air being drawn into a system, which ultimately has the undesirable effect of reducing the flow rate.
This inhibitor is approved to LPCB (Loss Prevention Certification Board) LPS 2070 and BS EN 12845 standards and reduces pump suction pressure requirements by 30%.
