HydroSlide® Flow Regulator Type MINI

Compact regulator with rotating plate

suitable for the greatest discharges

no electrical power required

The Challenge

Modern management concepts recommend throttling organs with perpendicular flow curve for discharging storm water, combined sewage or wastewater. These organs must provide precise discharge limitations independent of impounding heights in basins, storage areas, overflows, treatment plants and separators.

The Solution

The HydroSlide® Flow Regulator Type MINI is an uncomplicated, robust stainless-steel construction with brass / PE bearings. The compact design makes it ideal for installation in small structures. Its straightforward design guarantees a high degree of reliability whilst remaining practically maintenance-free. The MINI regulator is designed to continually adapt and fix the optimal discharge for varying water levels, the float being the direct operational control. The throttling of the discharge begins when the water level rises. The valve’s float control moves upwards and rotates the orifice plate to close the outlet: the higher the water pressure, the smaller the outlet volume. The perpendicular Q/h value is attained from an impounding head of approx. 1.5 DR.

The robust mechanics of the HydroSlide® Flow Regulator, Type MINI, make it an ideal choice for flood retention operations.
