Series LF288A Lead Free* Hot or Cold Water Anti-Siphon Vacuum Breakers prevent the reverse flow of polluted water from entering into the potable water supply due to backsiphonage. It consists of Lead Free* brass body construction (LF288A) or chrome finish (LF288AC), chemical resistant silicone seat disc and an atmospheric vent to prevent spilling. Series LF288A has a full size orifice to assure pipe size capacity and maximum flow. It is ideal for low flow, non-continuous hot or cold water health hazard installations such as on laboratory equipment. Maximum Pressure:125psi (8.6 bar).
Series LF288A represents a complete line of vacuum breakers
designed to prevent backsiphonage of contaminated water into
a potable water supply.
They feature a lightweight, durable "disc float" suitable for temperatures up to 180°F (82°C) which closes the atmospheric
vent to prevent spilling under all rates of flow. Therefore, they
are ideally recommended for low flow installations such as laboratory equipment which use such a small amount of water.
They also contain a durable silicone disc which has high heat
and water hammer shock resistance and assures tight seating
with the lightest of seating contact.
Full Size Orifice - Series LF288A has a full-size orifice to assure
pipe size capacity. Water passages are streamlined to provide
high water flow with minimal pressure loss.
