Irritec Pressure Compensating Button Dripper
This Button Dripper has a 1/4" barb inlet. Can be inserted into 1/4" micro tube or directly into 1/2" poly tube by punching a hole into the 1/2" tubing with any 1/4" Hole Puncher and then inserting the dripper.
This button dripper design uses turbulent flow to regulate the water output. Turbulent flow drippers allow water to move rapidly in irregular random motions. Turbulent flow drippers regulate water flow by dissipating energy in friction against the walls of the water passage. Button drippers have extra large water passages to prevent clogging.
The Pressure Compensating Button Dripper has a special no-leak design that enables the dripper to open at 5 PSI and closes at 4 PSI. The dripper has a 1/4" barb inlet and 1/8" outlet.
Pressure compensating drippers have a built-in diaphragm that reacts to pressure, assuring equal flow. Their vibration during operation prevents clogging. Each dripper allows the same flow between 10 and 55 PSI. Use for trees, shrubs and flowerbeds. Ideal for medium and heavy soils - flat ground, hillsides and uneven terrain. Pressure compensating drippers are our most advanced drippers. They are designed for long life under the harshest conditions.
This dripper works well when combined with our multi-outlet dripper manifolds. This is a great design for greenhouses and nurseries.
The drippers are color coded. The flow rate is as follows:
.5 GPH = Blue
.75 GPH = Brown
1.5 GPH = Grey
2 GPH = Red
