Prevent Flooding from Broken Auxiliary Drains

AGF’s Model 5900 Flood Eliminator prevents flooding due to broken auxiliary drains on fire sprinkler systems. How does it work? Check out this video, or read below.

Broken auxiliary drains can cause expensive property damage when broken. They can release hundreds of gallons of water into a facility.

AGF’s COLLECTanDRAIN Flood Eliminator, Model 5900, significantly minimizes water damage. It reacts to false or accidental system trips, restricting the flow from the broken drain.

Install the Flood Eliminator in a vertical section of pipe before the auxiliary drain. The system trips when freezing temperatures cause an auxiliary drain break. The sudden impact of that pressurized water triggers the Flood Eliminator to close.

Once closed, only about 8 ounces of water per minute will flow through the broken auxiliary drain. This substantially limits the amount of water spilling into the facility.

Once the system depressurizes, the Flood Eliminator resets on its own. This allows any remaining water to drain as usual. Assemble the Flood Eliminator to existing auxiliary drains with ease. Or, get it pre-assembled on AGF’s COLLECTanDRAIN products.
