Select a flow control that meets your performance and budget requirements:


Hydro-Brake® Optimum vortex flow control


Manage low, moderate and high flows to deliver sustainable drainage from single sites to large networks.


The Hydro-Brake® Optimum vortex flow control provides customised water quantity management for surface, foul or combined water across a wide range of flows and for a variety of applications.

Precision-engineered to meet site-specific flow, head and storage requirements, only the Hydro-Brake® Optimum leverages more than 30 years of vortex flow control expertise to deliver exceptional flood protection and sustainable drainage.


Hydro-Brake® Agile float-operated flow control


Reduce upstream storage and manage flood risk at sites with stringent discharge consents where space for on-site attenuation is at a premium.


Where adequate on-site infiltration is not possible, flood risks must be mitigated by attenuating stormwater to result in adequate flood storage. The Hydro-Brake® Agile flow control delivers effective flow control for sites with highly constrained storage conditions.


Hydro-Brake® Orifice


Manage moderate flows and deliver sustainable drainage at site and development level.


The Hydro-Brake® Orifice flow control provides water quantity management for surface, foul or combined water at sites with generous discharge consents and low storage constraints.

A low-cost, low-complexity flow control, the Hydro-Brake® Orifice is ideal for development-scale sustainable drainage at sites with moderate storage options.
