Introducing the Oatey Quiet Pipe Shock Absorber, a reliable solution for addressing water hammer problems in plumbing systems. Water hammer, also known as hydraulic shock, occurs when the flow of water in a pipe is suddenly stopped or changed, resulting in a loud banging noise and potentially damaging the plumbing system. Our Oatey Quiet Pipes Hammer Arrestor is designed to help solve both current and potential water hammer issues, ensuring a quiet and efficient plumbing system.
The Quiet Pipes Hammer Arrestor utilizes a piston design to absorb the shock created by the sudden stoppage or change in water flow. When a valve is closed abruptly, the water enters the pressurized chamber within the hammer arrestor, and the piston absorbs the water pressure, preventing the banging and vibrations within the pipeline. This design effectively reduces the hydraulic shock, protecting your plumbing system from potential damage.
Once the water flow is absorbed by the piston and contained within the chamber, it is then dissipated to the rest of the water line in a controlled manner. This helps to eliminate the abrupt pressure changes that cause water hammer, ensuring smooth and quiet operation throughout the plumbing system. By providing a reliable and effective shock absorption mechanism, our Quiet Pipes Hammer Arrestor helps to maintain the integrity of your plumbing system and extends its lifespan.
