Hydrofort - Lg/Sm

The HYDROFORT service pressure vessel is designed for pump cycle control, pressurized water storage and pressure regulation on clear and potable/drinking water systems.

The HYDROFORT is available in vertical or horizontal designs with a bladder that is fixed to the outlet/inlet connection orifice located on the bottom or the side of the vessel. The bladder is designed so it can expand to the full size of the vessel. This allows for greater drawdown volumes, and less stress on the bladder. The air is trapped in the space between the outside of the bladder and the wall of the vessel. Therefore the liquid is not in contact with the steel walls of the vessel.

The HYDROFORT vessel is available in a range of 25 to 40,000 gallons, and service pressures of 50 to 1160 PSI.

Refer to the Pump Cycle Analysis section of our website for technical help on how to size the right tank for you application.
