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 units are used to regulate the pressure within the drip irrigation system. Three popular pressures are offered to optimize overall system performance: 10, 15, and 25 PSI (see performance data for specifics).
- 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 or 15 PSI for tape).
- The Pipe Thread option is used with NPT (national pipe thread) connections, commonly found in PVC and manifold systems.
Note: Most pressure regulators 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 or greater than 0.5 GPM before taking the measurement. Pressure gauge must be installed at the end of your irrigation mainline to correctly read system pressure.
|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.|
