The following Flamco Vessels are for use in potable water or fresh water installations.
The Airfix A and D expansion vessels operate in such a way that the water flows right through and they are continuously flushed with fresh water from the mains. This prevents tepid, stagnant water from collecting in the vessel in which bacterial growth could occur. Therefore, users can be assured of high quality potable water.
Applying an Airfix A / D expansion vessel to a water heater prevents the opening of the safety group or safety valve each time the potable water is heated. As a result, not only the life of the safety group or safety valve is significantly prolonged (damage or calcification of seat is avoided) but also the risk of permanent leakage (with high water loss as a consequence). An Airfix vessel is also a perfect solution in basement applications where the drain is higher than the safety valve.
