Flow Control Pressure Reducing and Sustaining Hydrometer IR-972-55-RUX

The BERMAD Model IR-972-55-RUX integrates a vertical turbine Woltman-type water meter
with a diaphragm actuated hydraulic control valve.
Combining a Flow Meter and Main Valve, allows efficient irrigation control with an
irrigation controller.
The BERMAD Hydrometer limits the flow and downstream pressure to a constant
preset maximum.
It either opens or shuts in response to an electric signal.
