ACO Q-Brake Vortex - See how it works
Designed to regulate stormwater
ACO Q-Brake Vortex is a horizontal vortex flow control designed to regulate stormwater flows from 1-100 litres per second. Manufactured from grade 304 stainless steel, each ACO Q-Brake Vortex is individually configured to suit specific performance criteria.

ACO Q-Brake Vortex utilises the upstream head and discharge to generate a ‘vortex’ within the structure of the unit. The water is then release at a pre-determined controlled rate preventing downstream flooding.

Unlike more conventional methods, ACO Q-Brake Vortex is less prone to blockage, and permits higher flow at a lower head of water, as a vortex control allows an outlet 4-6 times larger in cross sectional area to be used.
