FP McCann’s StormBrake™ is manufactured using grade 304L / 316L stainless steel for increased durability, strength and resistance to corrosion and chemical damage. It consists of 3 main parts: an inlet section, a vortex chamber and an outlet. Each part can be configured to provide the most efficient solution to specific site requirements.
Each StormBrake™ is fitted with a pivoting bypass door on the front face in line with the outlet pipe. A stainless steel wire cable is attached to the bypass door and extends to the top of the manhole chamber. Upon pulling the cable the bypass door rotates and moves upwards, revealing a clear straight-through channel between the manhole and the outflow pipe. In the event of the StormBrake™ becoming blocked by debris, the bypass door allows fast discharge of water out of the chamber for maintenance.
