What is a break tank?

On commercial dishwashers and glasswashers, a break tank – also known as type “A” air gap – is used to prevent dirty wastewater back feeding from the machine and contaminating the main water supply. In the UK, the Water Regulations Approval Scheme (WRAS) require commercial dishwashers to be fitted with a break tank to ensure safety standards.    

Do I need a break tank?

To comply with UK regulations, all our commercial dishwashers are fitted with a break tank as standard. A break tank is not a requirement in a glasswasher, however they can be used to guarantee consistent water pressure in sites where water pressure is not suitable.
