|Pressure regulators maintain an applicator’s flow and distribution uniformity while increasing a system’s efficiency. When the pressure produced by a pump is too high, a regulator can be used to help prevent overwatering, runoff and plant disease.
The basic function of a pressure regulator is to limit excessive and varying inlet pressures to a constant outlet pressure. This is done to maintain the desired performance of a sprinkling device.
Pressure regulators accomplish this by automatically modulating their area of opening. By changing the area of opening as upstream pressures fluctuate, pressure loss through the regulator changes proportionally. This allows them to maintain the downstream pressure at a
Senninger pressure regulators are built using high-impact engineering grade thermoplastics and are 100% water-tested at our facilities. However, like sprinklers, they do not last forever. Irrigators are encouraged to check their pressure regulators at least every three years.
