Nelson Irrigation of Walla Walla, Washington has introduced its 1000 Series valves which the company says will save energy with higher flow capacity and lower friction loss.
The valves have more precise and stable pressure regulation over a wider range of flow and with minimal pressure differential required across the valve.
A modular design provides ultimate flexibility in valve style and connection type while simplifying installation, trouble-shooting, and maintenance – good news for the grower, installer, and system designer.
Three flow path options are available: inline, tee, and elbow.
Choose from five inlet-outlet styles: proprietary Nelson “Flex-Connect” ends with an interchangeable design allow for ‘mixing and matching’ the ends.
These include: 1 ¼ inch, 1 ½ inch, 2 inch npt or bsp; 3 inch Splined Connection; 2 inch and 3 inch Victaulic; plus two wafer styles – 2 inch ANSI Flange and 2x3 inch flange adapters which allow installing a 2 inch valve directly between 3 inch flanges.
The 1000 Series valve applications include zone control for sprinkler or drip irrigated row crops, nursery crops, orchards and vineyards.
The valve fits perfectly under a Big Gun for solid set irrigation, end of pivot solutions, and a variety of environmental controls including fire suppression, dust suppression. and cooling.
