Water Pressure Management

As foodservice establishments expand their beverage offerings, the increased water usage can adversely impact operational performance. This, coupled with fluctuating city water flow and pressure, can lead to inconsistent drink quality, poor beverage dispenser performance and premature exhaustion of water filter cartridges.

Pentair Shurflo offers a wide range of water pressure management systems. Our Water Boost Systems elevates the pressure up to 90 psi and stores the water under pressure in an accumulator tank. This ensures that there is enough pressurized water for all beverage system components during peak operating hours when the water pressure in the restaurant is likely to fluctuate. Our pump and accumulator tank systems maintain adequate, consistent water pressure to one or more dispensing valves, and are NSF, UL and CSA listed.

Water Pressure Reducing Valves (WPRV) are devices that are set to specific psi levels, with pressure ranges from 30 to 80 psi. The WPRV should be installed as close as possible to the inlet of the carbonator pump and dispenser.

Water filtration systems have minimum water pressure requirements. Keep in mind that if water pressure is too low, filters will plug prematurely because particulates collect only on the surface of the carbon and will essentially “cake” itself, instead of penetrating deep into the cartridge. It’s important to always put a carbon water filtration system after the water boost to help keep:

• High water pressure flowing to the filter system, which extends the life of the cartridges.

• Chlorine in the bladder of the water boost to prevent growth of algae and bacteria.

Add a Pentair Shurflo Water Pressure Management System to boost your beverage equipment’s performance and optimize your ability to serve consistent, high quality beverages. Our water pressure management solutions are proven, reliable performers even in the most challenging foodservice environment, and are available in a wide range of configurations to fit multiple applications.
