AGAWAM, Mass. – OMG Roofing Products has introduced the Vortex Breaker Strainer Dome for retrofitting the industry’s most popular retrofit drains – OMG Hercules Drains. The new strainer dome with built in vortex breaker technology is designed for better performance by helping to improve water flow from the roof.

According to independent studies, when upgraded with the Vortex Breaker Strainer Dome, Hercules Drains offer up to 2.5 times greater flow capacity than Hercules Drains without vortex breaker technology.  Faster water flow off the roof also means that the drains get excessive weight off the roof faster.

In addition, the integrated vortex breaker technology greatly reduces the chugging affect that occurs when a vortex collapses, which can overload the plumbing system.

Vortex Breaker Strainer Domes are made of heavy duty cast aluminum and will not rust for long life on the roof. The safety yellow powder coat makes them easily visible on the roof so they do not pose a trip hazard. Lastly, the new domes are compatible with all 3-, 4-, 5- and 6-inch OMG Hercules and OMG Aluminum Classic drains, including thermoplastic coated versions, and are installed using only a screwdriver with a #2 square drive.
