ASSE 1060 Standard Specifications
In 1996, the American Society of Sanitary Engineering released a new standard - ASSE 1060 - to regulate the budding backflow enclosure industry.
ASSE-1060 Certified: Holds 11,000 Lbs. For 24 Hours!
ASSE-1060 Certification requires an outdoor enclosure be able to support a minimum vertical load of 100 pounds per square foot for 24 hours with no structural damage. Check out this infographic to get an idea of what that would look like.
You might have noticed that we've been digging deep into the problems with below grade vaults lately. That's because placing backflow preventers in utility vaults can be dangerous. Instead of writing another long and in-depth post on this topic again, we put together this infographic to illustrate the crucial reason to keep backflow preventers out of vaults.
More and more water jurisdictions across the US are requiring the use of the RPZ instead of the double check. RPZ valves offer better protection to the water supply. With this added protection comes the additional work of specifying and installing reduced pressure zone valves in a safe place. Over the years, we've learned most designers just aren’t aware the relief valve could dump large volumes of water into the building. And those that did
Designing and Specifying the optimal enclosure for industrial equipment
Theory to reality We all know that talking about something theoretically is different than actually discussing specifics. That's especially true of technical requirements. So if you'd like to take the theory of the design guide to the next step, we're happy to spend some time consulting with you to design the perfect enclosure around the specific details of your requirements.
When we ask why new customers have previously chosen to install backflow preventers below ground or inside, the number one reason we hear is aesthetics. Architects, building owners, and everyone else involved in the decision is under the assumption that backflow enclosures have to be an eye-sore. Well, this new guide to enclosure aesthetics is here to change your mind.
We recently shipped model LES 180-312-144 for a large RPZ backflow project in Pennsylvania. This enclosure is 15 feet wide, 26 feet long and 12 feet tall. Yes, a 390 square foot enclosure! Big enough to live in!
