Dole Style 12 GPM, 1" FIPT Flow Control

Flow regulators are used to maintain a defined flow rate regardless of pressure variations of the supply line. Precise flow control improves system performance and in the case of plumbing systems, it provides comfort of use at low pressure as well as water and energy saving at high pressure.

When there is no flow or pressure, the o-ring is relaxed. When there is normal pressure, the o-ring subjected to the line pressure is compressed into the seating area. As the pressure increases, the o-ring is compressed further into the seating area. As the pressure decreases, the o-ring relaxes. Since the flow rate for a given orifice changes to the square root of delta P, the o-ring deformation is equal to this thus giving a constant flow over a wide range of pressure variations. Standard regulators begin controlling at 15 PSI.

Thread Sealants: Teflon Tape or Paste?

Teflon tape is a quick and clean way to seal threads in most applications. When applying Teflon tape, care must be taken to apply the tape correctly or leaking may still occur. You should wrap the thread 2-3 times around the threads in a counter-clockwise direction so that the tape doesn't bunch up when it is screwed into the pipe. Do not over tighten, as this may cause the tape to become thin or break in spots, while under tightening may allow water through.

For professional, long-term or industrial applications, Teflon paste, although messy and more difficult to apply, will provide a more reliable seal that won't leak if the plastic pipe distorts over time. Teflon paste should be applied to both the male and female threads.
