Rule 1

Typical Branch Line


As shown above, it has been established that the preferred location
for the water hammer arrestor is at the end of the branch line between
the last two fixtures served.
The location of the water hammer arrestor shown above applies to
branch lines that do not exceed 20 feet in length, from the start of the
horizontal branch line to the last fixture supply on this branch line.
When the branch line exceeds the 20 foot length, an additional water
hammer arrestor should be used. This practice is best defined by two
rules which have been established to cover the placement of water
hammer arrestors.

Sizing Table

The majority of sizing and selection applications will involve single and
multiple fixture branch lines. These are easily handled with the sizing
and selection table. The remainder of the applications involve individual runs of piping to a remote item of equipment. The properly sized
water hammer arrestor for such applications can be determined by
the tables below.

For Water Pressures up to 65psi

All sizing data in this section is based on flow velocities of 10 fps or


less. The certification testing was conducted with a velocity of 10 fps
to offer assurance that PDI approved units were capable of handling
shock of maximum intensity that may be encountered.

LENGTH OF PIPE (ft)

When long runs of piping are employed to serve a remote item of


equipment, the water hammer arrestor should be located as close as
possible to the point of quick closure. At this location, the water hammer arrestor will control the developed energy and prevent the shock
wave from surging through the piping system. A typical example of
placement is as shown.

Rule 2

Ideally, the flow pressure in branch lines serving fixtures should never
exceed 55psi. Pressure reducing valves should be installed to maintain
proper pressure. When flow pressures are 65 to 85psi the next size
water hammer arrestor should be selected. Refer to sizing table for
water pressure over 65psi.

Temperature Range: 33F to 180F (0.5C to 82C).

Explanation - Fixture unit sizing and selection table is used to


select the required PDI unit (water hammer arrestor). The sum of
the fixture unit rating of units X and Y shall be equal to or greater
than the demand of the branches.

For Light Commercial/Residential Systems

For Residential Systems Only


Model 05H-M1
4" (20mm) Hose Type
specially designed for
in-line use with
washing machines

4" 05-QC

Dishwashers, clothes washers, fast closing positive shutoff


valves incorporated in the system, all contribute to creating
water shock which is not only annoying but damaging to
pipes and appliances. Watts Water Hammer Arrestors
incorporate a permanent pre-charged sealed air chamber to
absorb the shock. The sealed chamber prevents the loss of
air to the water and ensures long and trouble-free life. All
potential leak points are permanently sealed.

he noise from banging pipes is caused by shocks of


high speed water flowing in the piping system when
a fixture is suddenly closed. Sudden stoppage of the
water (a non-compressible liquid) flowing at a given pressure and velocity causes a surge or spike of pressure and
is called water hammer. When this occurs a pressure wave
travels back through the piping until it finds a point of relief.

Sizing and Placement


The fixture unit valve shown in the cold and hot water columns of Table A below are utilized in the sizing of water hammer arrestors.
Once the total number of fixture units has been calculated for the hot and cold water branch lines serving a group of fixtures, this number can
be applied to the sizing and selection Table B below to determine the appropriate size water hammer arrestor for the hot and cold branch lines.

For Light Commercial/Residential Systems

For Residential Systems Only


Model 05H-M1
4" (20mm) Hose Type
specially designed for
in-line use with
washing machines

4" 05-QC

Dishwashers, clothes washers, fast closing positive shutoff


valves incorporated in the system, all contribute to creating
water shock which is not only annoying but damaging to
pipes and appliances. Watts Water Hammer Arrestors
incorporate a permanent pre-charged sealed air chamber to
absorb the shock. The sealed chamber prevents the loss of
air to the water and ensures long and trouble-free life. All
potential leak points are permanently sealed.

he noise from banging pipes is caused by shocks of


high speed water flowing in the piping system when
a fixture is suddenly closed. Sudden stoppage of the
water (a non-compressible liquid) flowing at a given pressure and velocity causes a surge or spike of pressure and
is called water hammer. When this occurs a pressure wave
travels back through the piping until it finds a point of relief.

Sizing and Placement


The fixture unit valve shown in the cold and hot water columns of Table A below are utilized in the sizing of water hammer arrestors.
Once the total number of fixture units has been calculated for the hot and cold water branch lines serving a group of fixtures, this number can
be applied to the sizing and selection Table B below to determine the appropriate size water hammer arrestor for the hot and cold branch lines.

Typical Branch Line


As shown above, it has been established that the preferred location
for the water hammer arrestor is at the end of the branch line between
the last two fixtures served.
The location of the water hammer arrestor shown above applies to
branch lines that do not exceed 20 feet in length, from the start of the
horizontal branch line to the last fixture supply on this branch line.
When the branch line exceeds the 20 foot length, an additional water
hammer arrestor should be used. This practice is best defined by two
rules which have been established to cover the placement of water
hammer arrestors.

Sizing Table

The majority of sizing and selection applications will involve single and
multiple fixture branch lines. These are easily handled with the sizing
and selection table. The remainder of the applications involve individual runs of piping to a remote item of equipment. The properly sized
water hammer arrestor for such applications can be determined by
the tables below.

For Water Pressures up to 65psi

All sizing data in this section is based on flow velocities of 10 fps or


less. The certification testing was conducted with a velocity of 10 fps
to offer assurance that PDI approved units were capable of handling
shock of maximum intensity that may be encountered.

When long runs of piping are employed to serve a remote item of


equipment, the water hammer arrestor should be located as close as
possible to the point of quick closure. At this location, the water hammer arrestor will control the developed energy and prevent the shock
wave from surging through the piping system. A typical example of
placement is as shown.

Ideally, the flow pressure in branch lines serving fixtures should never

proper pressure. When flow pressures are 65 to 85psi the next size
water hammer arrestor should be selected. Refer to sizing table for
water pressure over 65psi.

Temperature Range: 33F to 180F (0.5C to 82C).

LENGTH OF PIPE (ft)

When long runs of piping are employed to serve a remote item of


equipment, the water hammer arrestor should be located as close as
possible to the point of quick closure. At this location, the water hammer arrestor will control the developed energy and prevent the shock
wave from surging through the piping system. A typical example of
placement is as shown.

Rule 2

Ideally, the flow pressure in branch lines serving fixtures should never
exceed 55psi. Pressure reducing valves should be installed to maintain
proper pressure. When flow pressures are 65 to 85psi the next size
water hammer arrestor should be selected. Refer to sizing table for
water pressure over 65psi.

Temperature Range: 33F to 180F (0.5C to 82C).

Explanation - Fixture unit sizing and selection table is used to


select the required PDI unit (water hammer arrestor). The sum of
the fixture unit rating of units X and Y shall be equal to or greater
than the demand of the branches.
