Attachment Prevents Broken Auxiliary Drains from Flooding a Facility

AGF Manufacturing has introduced the Model 5900 Flood Eliminator, an attachment that prevents broken auxiliary drains from flooding a facility. The Model 5900 is designed to allow condensate water to collect normally in a standard drum drip. If presented with the pressurized flow that would result from a failed drum drip, it automatically trips to cut off that flow, eliminating 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 to be installed above the top valve of a typical auxiliary drain assembly and is housed in a 3.5-inch brass body with a 1-inch female NPT inlet and a 1-inch male NPT outlet. If the drain below a Flood Eliminator fails, the dry valve will open, resulting in a 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 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.
