Hydro-Guard Industrial Flushing System Improves Water Quality During the Pandemic

The Mueller Hydro-Guard Industrial Flushing System Keeps Water Clean

ATLANTA— The Mueller Hydro-Guard® Industrial Flushing System is ideal for keeping water clean, particularly in schools and manufacturing plants that are experiencing reduced and interrupted water usage during the pandemic. The system is designed for small-sized water lines where water quality conditions, water age or excessive temperatures require water to be turned over frequently.

Harold Mosley, Product Brand Manager for the Hydro-Guard line of flushing and monitoring products said “In these uncertain times, protecting water quality, and keeping water moving to prevent stagnation that can give rise to an increase in biofilm or lead leaching, is critical.  The Hydro-Guard system is inexpensive, compact and easy to install and will reduce the risk of waterborne illness, ensuring safe drinking water.”

The Hydro-Guard Industrial Flushing System allows managers of school properties, commercial buildings, hospitals and manufacturing facilities to help reduce operational expenses. By using less water to flush the lines and less staff-hours to maintain equipment, while bringing a higher degree of consistency to the flushing effort, these devices have the ability to give a return on investment within one year.

The flush schedule of the Hydro-Guard Industrial Flushing System is managed by a Bluetooth controller that is powered by a single 9-volt battery. Therefore, annual maintenance costs are less than $10 USD. For more advanced system monitoring and management, the Hydro-Guard Industrial Flushing can be upgraded to include SMART water quality monitoring, an upgrade that triggers flush events when preset levels of chlorine, temperature, pH, turbidity, flow and/or pressure is detected.

With its unique mechanical thermal control valve freeze protection system, the Hydro-Guard Industrial Flushing System can be installed either indoor and outdoor.  It can be used to deliver tepid water-to-eye wash or safety shower stations, or to deliver cooler water to temperature sensitive applications in a manufacturing plant.  The Hydro-Guard system comes with a ¾-inch stainless steel Singer® control valve and NSF 372 certified water quality sampling point.
