AGF Manufacturing is excited to introduce the Model 5900 Flood Eliminator, an attachment that prevents broken auxiliary drains from flooding a facility. The Model 5900 allows condensate water to collect normally in a standard drum drip. Pressurized flow from a failed drum drip automatically trips the auxiliary drain flood eliminator to cut off that flow. This eliminates the flooding and damage that would result from the system’s failure. The Flood Eliminator can be pre-assembled to AGF’s COLLECTanDRAIN auxiliary drains or retrofitted to existing auxiliary drains.
The patent-pending Model 5900 is designed for installation above the top valve of a typical auxiliary drain assembly. A 3.5” brass body with a 1” female NPT inlet and a 1” male NPT outlet houses the mechanism. If the drain below a Flood Eliminator fails, the dry valve will open. This results in pressurized water entering the system flowing towards the break. When this high-velocity pressurized flow reaches the specially engineered internal mechanism of the Flood Eliminator, it will shut down the flow and stop the flooding.
The auxiliary drain Flood Eliminator does not require power and will automatically reset when the system is reset. It is compatible with dry and pre-action systems using standard compressed air or nitrogen.
