HydroSlide® Flow Regulator Type MINI

Compact regulator with rotating plate
suitable for the greatest discharges
no electrical power required

The Challenge

Mod­ern hydraulic man­age­ment con­cepts require throt­tling devices to be con­sid­ered. The ide­al is where the flow curve is per­pen­dic­u­lar pro­vid­ing a con­stant dis­charge. Throt­tling con­trols are required for foul and sur­face water sys­tems, for water­cours­es and riv­er con­trol. These reg­u­lat­ing devices are required to pro­vide pre­cise dis­charge con­trol through­out the reg­u­lat­ing range. 

The Solution

The HydroSlide® Flow Reg­u­la­tor Type MINI is a sim­ple, robust stain­less-steel designed reg­u­la­tor with brass / PE bear­ings. The com­pact design makes it pos­si­ble to enable sim­ple con­trol struc­tures to be designed to house this reg­u­la­tor. Its com­pact design guar­an­tees a high degree of reli­a­bil­i­ty whilst remain­ing prac­ti­cal­ly main­te­nance-free. The MINI reg­u­la­tor is designed to con­tin­u­al­ly reg­u­late the flow rate through­out the oper­at­ing range of water lev­el. The reg­u­lat­ing of the dis­charge begins when the water lev­el ris­es. The float ris­es as the water lev­el increas­es which in turn rotates the ori­fice plate to reduce the ori­fice area to main­tain a con­stant head / flow rela­tion­ship. The con­stant dis­charge flow is attained from an impound­ing head of approx. 1.0 x DN.

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