Antimicrobial Laminar Flow Devices


Replace your current aerator with a laminar flow device and you'll feel better knowing you are getting cleaner water from your tap. The innovative screenless technology provides durable, dependable service, and with little build up. Let PlumbingSupply.com® be your source for these and thousands of other products.

Antimicrobial Laminar Flow Devices
Every time a faucet is turned off a few drops of water are trapped inside the aerator (or laminar device) where they stagnate, warm up and eventually evaporate, leaving a film of scale - a source of food for biofilm. To produce an aerated stream with up to 50% air (white and soft to the touch) air and water are mixed in the faucet aerator's mixing chamber. Most aerators draw air into the water stream, which can be a concern in healthcare institutions because the air is collected from the room around the faucet, and sometimes that air contains bacteria. When laminar aerators are used, air is not collected and drawn into the water stream, giving you a crystal clear stream of 100% water. Antimicrobially protected faucet attachments offer even more protection by incorporating the natural protection of silver, which prevents the growth of a broad range of microorganisms. By utilizing Agion® Antimicrobial technology, some of the laminar flow devices offered below deliver that extra built-in protection to help reduce the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew within the faucet attachment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. "What is Agion® Antimicrobial product protection?"
A. Agion® helps prevent the formation of biofilm on spout ends. To prevent biofilms from forming, the Agion® compound within the Careguard® inhibits the initial colonization with a tri-modal efficacy unique to silver. What this means is that it attacks the bacterial cell wall, interrupts cell metabolism, and prevents bacteria reproduction.

Q. "What is Biofilm?"
A. Biofilm is a community of microbes that attach to surfaces. After initial colonization, the biofilm creates a "barrier" to protect the bacteria's environment thus allowing microbes to multiply. Various factors can increase the risk of colonization and bacterial growth: warm water, water stagnation (such as in a pipework dead-leg zone) and nutrients (scale, sediment).

Q. "How do these prevent vandalism?"
A. The exposed body spins freely preventing simple unthreading and unauthorized removal. A special key is needed to install or remove the aerator.

Q. "What do you mean by 'no added air, 100% water' ?"
A. Standard aerators allow air to mix with the water as it flows out from the spout to achieve a soft to the touch, white appearance that most residential users are accustomed to. Laminar devices are designed to not allow any air surrounding the outlet into the flow of water. This helps prevent any air possibly containing bacteria from entering the water stream.
