PC Button Drip Emitters

PC Button Drip Emitters

DIG Pressure Compensating (PC) Button Drip Emitters are designed to produce a consistent flow rate over a pressure range of 7.25 to 58 PSI. DIG PC drip button emitters are continuously adjusting to varying water pressures, ensuring a constant flow from each drip emitter regardless of pressure fluctuations or varying elevations along the line. The PC drip emitters are available in .5, 1, 2 and 4 GPH. Used for flowers, shrubs groundcovers and trees, DIG PC drip emitters offer a convenient way to water both, new and existing landscapes, including difficult terrain such as slopes, oddly shaped areas and sites with high winds.

Features

  • Labyrinth water passage with a floating silicon diaphragm design provides a self-cleaning mechanism at the water outlet
  • Barbed inlet for installation into drip tubing or 1/4″ distribution tubing
  • Male nipple outlet for a placement of multi-outlet adapter or bug caps
  • Constructed of UV-resistant, durable plastic material to withstand the most adverse conditions
  • Available in four color-coded flow rates for easy identification
  • Pressure compensation enables the use of longer laterals with smaller diameter tubing
  • Ideal watering solution for long laterals, rapid irrigation cycles, and for light soils
  • Outlet can be connected into 1/8″ micro tubing with a stake for branching from the main line or lateral
  • Unaffected by fluctuating inlet water pressure
