Aeration at Low Pressure conditions

NEOPERL offers faucet aerators suitable for areas with low supply pressure or for gravity-fed systems. They ensure a fully aerated, comfortable stream in low pressure conditions (0.1-0.8 bar).

Flow Rate V

V class models produce an excellent aerated stream with only a minimal reduction in flow rate. V models are available in various product lines and sizes.

Recommended max. pressure at aerator: 0.8 bar
Minimum flow requirement for aeration: 3.5 l/min at 0.1 bar

(*) Flow measured at 0.2 bar: approx. 5.2 l/min
(*) Air/Water Ratio:  approx. 1.3 : 1

 * values apply for STD sized aerators

Flow Rate Q

This aerator achieves a fully aerated stream at low pressure conditions even with low flow at the spout end which means only half of the water consumption compared to the V model.

Recommended max. pressure at aerator: 0.6 bar
Minimum flow requirement for aeration: 1.8 l/min at 0.1 bar

(*) Flow measured at 0.2 bar: approx. 2.5 l/min
(*) Air/Water Ratio:  approx. 1.5 : 1

 * values apply for STD sized aerators

Flow Chart CASCADE® vs PERLATOR® V (STD Size)

While the well-known V class models have a flow rate of approx. 5.2l/min, the new Q model has a flow rate of approx. 2.5l/min (STD size at 0.2 bar). Thus, the flow rate of CASCADE® Q is only half that of PERLATOR® HONEYCOMB V at 0.2 bar and helps save water.
