Back Download

Fire brigades must ensure the protection of drinking water when using hydrants to access the drinking water network. This mobile backflow preventer is a standardised solution which can be quickly and easily connected. The carrying handle and counter-grip on the input coupling simplify its attachment to hydrants, e­nabling the preventer to be appropriately connected even under difficult conditions. The design of the handles rules out incorrect installation.

Statement by the Jury

The sophisticated design of the backflow preventer BFW112 successfully unites high functionality with intuitive operation.
