The latest PCAâ Dual-Core Aerators, from British manufacturer Neoperl, have been designed to ensure a consistent flow in both high and low-pressure environments. It’s the very latest in technology for aerators and it’s unique and patented by Neoperl.
Stream and flow control devices are often fitted in the spout of new washbasin, bath and kitchen taps and in many cases this new dual core aerator can be retrofitted to these taps to improve performance. They shape the water to produce a non-splashing stream and add air to make the water pleasantly soft. Combined with a flow regulator, these latest Dual Core Aerators control the flow of water, reduce plumbing noise and save water and therefore energy
Regardless of the prevalent water pressure conditions, this new aerator maintains a pleasant and consistent water stream at the chosen flow rate. It works by using two dynamic control rings (O-rings) within the flow regulator, enabling high performance at both low and high pressure, particularly beneficial for the UK market. At low pressure, it encourages a high flow rate due to a larger bypass section and at high pressure the o-rings are pressed into the gaps between the teeth of the core, thus reducing the size of the opening for the water leading to pressure independent flow rates.
All standard sizes are available in the new PCA Dual-Core Aerator plus 1.2gpm*, 1.5pgm and 2.1gpm, with further less popular specifications currently in preparation for launch later this year.
Neoperl is a UK manufacturer and part of the German-Swiss Neoperl Group. They design and manufacture innovative solutions for the plumbing industry and their products shape the water stream, regulate the flow rate and protect drinking water. In the UK they largely manufacture flow regulators and can boast over 90% of the world’s supply from their Malvern, Worcestershire factory. Their flow regulators and aerators can be found in most showers, taps and boilers across the UK. Many of their products can also be retro-fitted providing great water-saving solutions for the home.
