Hydrogenerator and Low-Flow Fixtures


T&S Brass and Bronze Works, a manufacturer of foodservice and commercial plumbing products, has released a new low-flow hydrogenerator that cleanly and sustainably powers sensor faucets with flow rates between 0.5 gallons per minute (gpm) and 1.0 gpm.

A self-sustaining power solution, hydrogenerators harness the flow of water to generate and store power to operate sensor faucets, eliminating the need for hardwire or battery back-up. By providing their own clean, renewable power source, these easy-to-install devices reduce maintenance, improve reliability and increase sustainability.

The newly introduced EC-HYDROGEN-LF low-flow hydrogenerator enables facilities to further conserve water and energy and can help meet low-flow LEED requirements. Previously, T&S hydrogenerators required flow rates of 1.0 gpm or higher.

“Sustainability and the push to reduce the use of natural resources is a force that will only continue to grow in the coming years,” said Eva-Marie Fox, T&S vice president of marketing. “T&S is proud to put our innovation to work, supporting our customers’ efforts to be good stewards of the environment and their own resources.”
