Product types Vortex flow control devices
Materials Stainless steel
 
 
 

The SDS Vortex Flow Control is used to control the rate at which water is released from a stormwater storage system to downstream drainage systems.

It is a self-activating device which controls the rate of water release by inducing a vortex motion. No external energy supplies are needed and it contains no moving parts.

Units are equipped with a drain down/by-pass mechanism which is remotely operated from ground level. In the event of a blockage at the inlet or outlet, the mechanism allows drain down without the need for pumping or bypass penstocks and pipework.

A range of SDS vortex flow controls is available to meet the specific requirements of each installation.

Features and benefits

  • Self-activating and no moving parts
  • High hydraulic performance
  • Large outlet diameter minimises the risk of blockage
  • Remotely controlled drain down/by-pass mechanism
  • Made from 10 gauge Grade 304 stainless steel
  • Conforms to all relevant British Standards
