Product information

Altecnic Mechanical Shock Arrestor 0.5" aims to minimise the shock impact of water coming to a sudden stop when the pressure in the system is high. If the pressure in a system is high, the water when flowing has a greater momentum which when brought to a sudden halt, will create a shock effect causing pipes to shudder and vibrate. This is normally caused by the rapid closure of lever operated taps or valves, solenoid valves or valves in dish washers and washing machines.The Altecnic 525040 water hammer arrester is designed for a single outlet, such as a tap or washing machine, or a small group of services, such as a bathroom supplied via a manifold. The vibration caused by water hammer is not only annoying but eventually can result in split or cracked pipe fittings, especially at joints. The Altecnic water hammer arrester is maintenance free and can be installed in any orientation. The arrester should be installed close to the tap or valve minimising the effect of the shock on the system.
