Water Hammer Arrestors
In any piping system where water flows at high speeds is suddenly stopped by a quick closing cut off valve, then it generates a shock wave. This is due to the immediate stoppage of any non-compressible liquid like water flowing at high speed and a given pressure causing a sudden increase in peak pressure called water hammer. Appliances like dishwashing machines, washing machines, etc. have fast cut off valves, and therefore, the water hammer effect can cause damage to these appliances. Water hammer arrestors are devices to absorb these shock waves, thereby ensuring the longevity of the piping system in these appliances. They have a sealed air chamber system which takes care of the shock waves. As the air chamber is leak-proof, air doesn't get mixed with the water. Water hammer arrestors are essential devices in the piping system to prevent leakages from any potential leak points
