Neptune FM Controller

Pressure control in water distribution systems is a proven technique for reducing Leakage and the frequency of bursts. Normally, a PRV (Pressure Reducing Valve) is set to a fixed outlet pressure to ensure a guaranteed minimum pressure to the critical point in the network during maximum flow conditions. Pressure management using PRV controllers enables pressure to be optimized with changing demand.

NEPTUNE II FM PPF is a Full Modulation electronic controller that enables the pressure into a zone to be controlled between two pre-set values (“low”and “high”) according to the demand (flow rate) or the time of day. This can achieve immediate water savings and enables the PRV to be controlled reliably and safely.
