Lowara cat-5 packaged break tank booster sets designed to be both compact and cost effective.
Varitank and fix tank booster sets have been designed to comply with the Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulation 1999 and come as a complete package either mounted on a base plate or frame suitable for providing potable water.Each package is completely assembled and wired to minimise the time taken on site for installation, especially important when the set is replacing an existing unit where down time must be kept to an absolute minimum so end users are not overly disrupted.
Each set has a type AB air gap which provides back fl ow protection to fl uid Category 5. All tanks are WRAS approved.
All sets come complete with ball valve and fl oat, ball valve housing (Except 250lt sets) weir slot overfl ow, warning pipe (on sets 1000lt and above), drain valve and low level float switch.
All the above sets except the 250lt are fi tted with ball valve housings which provides the best usable volume from each tank.
Break tank selector switches are available with booster sets that have the break tanks that are split into 2 sections.
Storing water has two main purposes,
Design codes recommend that storage is provided to cover the interruption of an incoming mains supply, in order to maintain a water supply to the building.
Water supply companies are empowered to insist on specifi c terms including the volume or period of storage, within the terms of their supply agreement with a consumer, however many water supply companies only recommend that storage be provided in accordance with BS6700, placing the responsibility and decision fi rmly on the consumer.
The table below provides guidance on typical usage within a building over a 24 hour period.
The table also provides storage volume based on the % of daily demand when the water supply company or client has not dictated the period of cover.
Consideration should also be given to ensure that the break tank has suffi cient volume to cover 50% of the design duty for a minimum duration of 10 minutes.
