Effective Airlock Prevention with Floraflex Air Bleed Valve 6 x 19mm
Maintain the efficient flow of water in your garden's mainline with the Floraflex Air Bleed Valve 2.0 (3/4"). Designed to be installed at the highest point of your mainline system, it helps prevent airlock issues and offers optimal control over the accuracy of your plant feedings.
Features and Benefits
- Prevents airlocks: By installing the valve at the highest point of the mainline, it stops the formation of airlocks and promotes a steady flow of water.
- Automatic operation: The valve opens as the water starts to flow and forces air out. Once the water reaches the valve, it automatically closes and allows water to flow freely through the line.
- ¾" male pipe thread: It comes designed with a ¾" male pipe thread (MPT), making it easy to connect to your garden's irrigation system.
- Recommended PSI range: The valve works best within a pressure range of 15-140 PSI, giving you versatile performance capabilities.
- Min operating pressure with auto-opening: This air bleed valve features a minimum operating pressure of 5 PSI. It automatically opens when the pressure drops below 5 PSI, ensuring optimal functionality.
- PVC construction: Made from durable PVC material, this valve is built to withstand wear and tear from regular use.
