PC (pressure compensating) drip emitters contain a diaphragm that continuously adjusts to varying water pressure to ensure a constant flow rate. The silicone diaphragm allows particles to pass through without harming the emitter, providing reliable performance and a longer life. This method of continuous flushing allows the drip emitter to operate at optimal flow rates under extreme conditions and results in fewer clogs than non-PC emitters. PC drip emitters provide the stated flow rate over a wide pressure range, giving them high uniformity regardless of topography. These drippers are suitable for use at home and in commercial or agricultural environments.
