Hydro International has launched the Hydro-Brake Flow Control Series, a comprehensive toolbox of devices for watercourse, surface water and sewer network control.

Following the implementation of new regulations and technical guidance, projects across the UK are utilising Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS) and improved flood defences. The Hydro-Brake Flow Control Series has been designed to help designers, developers and contractors to progress seamlessly through planning consents, construction and adoption.

The toolbox – which comprises Hydro-Brake Flood, Agile, Orifice and Optimum – has been developed to provide sustainable water attenuation and flow control performance for sites of varying sizes and budgets. Flows of a few litres per second are available for smaller projects, whilst major flood defence schemes can be catered for by thousands of litres per second.

Hydro-Brake Flood offers vortex flow control for flood defence, from small dispersed schemes to major watercourse control; Hydro-Brake Agile is a float-activated flow control, which has been designed to achieve a constant discharge rate. Particularly suitable for constrained sites, it offers minimum upstream storage over a wide range of heads.

The series also features Hydro International’s flagship device for passive flow control: boasting BBA and WRc accreditation, Hydro-Brake Optimum is the only vortex flow control for which the head and discharge relationship can be custom engineered.

Offering the potential to reduce CDM risks on site, Hydro-Brake Flow Controls can be specified and supplied pre-fitted, in precast chambers of reinforced concrete.Hydro-Brake Flow Control Series
