The new, flow-through style fittings, designed with threaded fixture connections and integrated mounting brackets, are used in series or ring installations and can be used in hot or cold water systems. Flow-through fittings allow water distribution systems to be designed in new ways to reduce stagnation with configurations that allow the use of a single fixture to generate flow through many fixtures up to the point of connection. This type of system also minimizes dead legs between tees and wall penetrations.
“The new double drop elbows provide a connection and mounting similar to those supplied by a drop ninety in a conventional installation,” said Derek Bower, product director, metal systems, Viega. “Viega’s new double drop elbows allow for smarter installation designs, reduced stagnation and increased flow through seldom-used pipes and fixtures.”
Double drop elbows are available in ½- and ¾-inch sizes.
