KIT, WATER TAP STAND, 6 self-closing taps 40kg 0,06m³
KIT, WATER TAP STAND, 6 taps 1/4 turn 54kg 0,136m³
6-tap stand for individual water distribution to large numbers. The stand should be installed in a safe area, where people can queue for water collection. Waste-water drainage is essential to keep the area clean.
One stand can serve 1000 people with 20 litres each in 12 hours. The water pressure at the tap is determined by the head difference between the surface on which the water tank’s base is resting and the tap, it may be necessary to create an elevated surface on which to install the tank.
ICRC standard: tap stand with six ¼-turn taps and a 2″ Storz coupling.
1. – ¼-turn taps are cheaper than automatic valves, and close efficiently even with very low pressure
2. – One wooden box contains all the necessary items to assemble a complete stand, and to terminate with a Storz 2″ coupling.
International Federation ERU standard: tap stand with self-closing taps (also standard for Oxfam, MSF, etc.)
1. – Self-closing valves (Talflo, etc?) close “automatically”, saving water. Sometimes leakage may occur with very low pressure (less than 1 bar). More expensive than ¼-turn valves.
2. – One box contains all the necessary items to assemble a complete stand, and to terminate with a 1.1/4″ BSP coupling.
See adaptation couplings in option list.
Do local manufacturing as soon as possible.
