Ensuring equal distribution of water in multi- stored buildingsadmin
In standard batteries, the amount of water flow per minute (flow) increases as the pressure increases. When the opposite happens, that is, installation pressure drops, flow rate drops. Mannesmann’s FlowSmart® technology does not allow flow irregularities due to pressure losses or sudden pressure increases.
In addition to saving water, these products allow the distribution of water evenly between floors and in constant flow. Thus, the prescribed flow rate remains constant at installation pressures of 1-8 bar.
Differences in Pressure from the City Clean Water Network
With the rapid urbanization, every day new buildings, houses and workplaces are among the new users of the city clean water distribution network. The municipalities responsible for the distribution of clean water in the city are making new investments and improving their infrastructure and establishing new clean water distribution stations and pumps. However, since the pressure of the clean water distributed from these stations often falls below or above the desired level, the negativities that occur there are reflected on the clean water line of our building.
Therefore, even if you are on the same city network, your pressures may have increased or decreased due to external work. Sudden pressure differences may also occur depending on the intensity of regional use during the day.
Significant differences depending on whether the water pressure in a business fed from the city’s clean water network is day or night (the pressure is higher since the city’s general water consumption is less at night), the district where the building is located, the district, whether the building is on top or down, or how many floors the building is. shows.
Differences in Pressure in Multi- Stored Buildings
In multi- stored buildings, a pressure difference of about 1 bar is produced on every three floors in the clean water line. For example, if a room on the 6th floor of a hotel business has a measured clean water line pressure of 5 bar, a water pressure of 7 bar will be measured on the ground floor of the same building. Despite being in the same building or neighborhood, rooms on different floors and up or down quarters are exposed to different network pressures.
FlowSmart® Flow Regulators Eliminate Pressure Differences Between Layers
FlowSmart® Flow Stabilization Regulators or Flow Regulators should be used in taps or showers used to eliminate these imbalances in pressure and to provide a constant water pressure to the user. These flow regulators absorb the high water pressure coming from the city clean water network and keep the flow rate in the sink faucet or shower faucet constant by controlling the inlet pressure value without being affected by the pressure changes.
By providing this equipment to washbasin and shower faucets in enterprises with high water pressure, both a comfortable water flow will be provided and a 50% saving in water consumption will be achieved.
With this flow regulator, the flash fluctuation problem caused by pressure differences between floors in high-rise buildings will be eliminated. In other words, there will be no flow of water in the upper floors and less in the lower floors. Thus, unbalanced distributions in multistage water systems fed from a single source and problematic distributions in common use water systems are ended.
