Backflow Prevention Learning System (single-sided)



Learn about common back flow prevention devices, and test them in a compact workstation

This system is designed to learn the necessary skills to test backflow prevention devices (BFP) using industrial-grade test equipment. The single-sided version accommodates 1 team.

BFP are of crucial importance for authorities responsible for the supply of potable water to populations. To make sure that public water is safe, cross-connections in the water distribution system with potentially harmful fluids must be identified. Proper backflow prevention devices must be installed to prevent the contamination of potable water.

The BFP Learning System, features the most common backflow prevention devices used in typical residential and commercial installations. Students learn to perform test procedures on BFP devices.

A mobile workstation forms the basis of the system. It includes various BFP devices and several other components such as a centrifugal pump, a flowmeter, valves, and pipes. Using modern, commercial-grade equipment is helpful in teaching theoretical and hands-on knowledge required to work in backflow prevention.

Features & Benefits

  • Compact double-sided workstation for two teams of students
  • Closed-loop recirculating water circuit with drip tray to keep the floor dry
