The Causes and Effects of Water Hammer

  • Hose stations that will not pass live steam

    • Steam and Water Hose Stations  

      Armstrong hose stations improve efficiency and reduce risk when mixing steam and water at the point of use for wash-down. Our hose stations will not pass live steam, even in the event of a significant cold water pressure reduction, complete failure of the cold water supply, or failure of its primary operating component.

  • Steam separators

    • Steam Separators  

      Armstrong in-line separators separate condensate efficiently using the centrifugal force of steam or air created by introducing it to a specifically shaped path. The result is improved thermal efficiency and reduced risks for water hammer, equipment corrosion and other problems.
