Hendrickson 3/4" Low Flow Pressure Reducer
Hendrickson DG5000 Series Pressure Regulator
The DG5000 series is a proven preset pressure regulator designed specifically for low flow drip irrigation applications. These fittings are used to reduce the pressure entering drip irrigation systems. Three popular pressures are offered to optimize overall system performance: 10, 15, and 25 PSI (see performance data for specifics) and a variety of thread configurations are available for easy installation.
The hose thread option is used with other garden hose thread fittings. Choose the appropriate preset PSI rating for your application. (normally 25 PSI for tubing and 10 PSI for tape)
These pressure reducers require at least 0.5 GPM flow to accurately regulate pressure. If you intend to measure the water pressure after this reducer, please ensure that water is flowing through the system at at or greater than 0.5 GPM before taking the measurement.
|Special note: This pressure reducer is not designed to operate under static (constant) pressure. It must be installed after any valves or timers to operate correctly. Using this item under static pressure will eventually weaken the internal spring and cause the regulator to fail.|
