    Why choose a laminar flow device instead of a faucet aerator?

    To produce an aerated stream, a faucet aerator mixes air and water together in the aerators mixing chamber.

    While drawing air from the room around the faucet isn't a problem in residential and commercial facilities, it can be a concern in hospitals, senior care facilities, and medical labs. Room air can contain harmful bacteria and when mixed with water it could potentially contaminant drinking water. For this reason, laminar devices are recommended for use in healthcare facilities.

    What is the difference between Care+Guard, PCA Care and PCA Perlator?

    All three of these devices are laminar solutions and do not mix air into the water. Instead, they produce a splash free crystal clear stream.

    The Care+Guard Laminar Flow Device provides an extra level of protection by providing built-in agion®, Nature's antimicrobial. Learn more about agion.

    Both Care+Guard and PCA Care devices don't have a wire mesh screen, but instead have a honeycomb screen-less design which helps to prevent lime build-up.

    PCA Care and PCA Perlator are pressure compensating and maintain a constant flow regardless of variations in line pressure. It optimizes system performance and comfort of use at all water pressures. The PCA Perlator has a wire mesh screen.

    What flow rates are available in laminar solutions?

    CareGuard® laminar solutions are available in 0.35 GPM, 0.5 GPM and 1.5 gpm.

    PCA Care laminar solutions are available in 1.5 gpm (economy flow) or 2.2 gpm (standard flow).

    PCA Perlator solutions are available in 1.0 gpm (low flow), 1.5 gpm (economy flow) or 2.2 gpm (standard flow) are available in 1.0 gpm, 1.5 gpm or 2.2 gpm.
