WILGER FLOW VIEW ™ BALL FLOW INDICATORS

Cost effective, modular, flexible configuration ball flow indicators let you see the liquid flow when you can’t see the nozzles or outlets.

Flow ViewTM Ball Flow Indicators let you identify any plugs or leaks so you can resolve them immediately.

No electronics needed. No costly maintenance.

Just a simple, dependable flow indicator.

Flow indicators are available in Manifold feed and Isolated feed columns.

SEEING IS KNOWING

A glance is all it takes to know if the correct amount of liquid is flowing to your spray nozzles or planter openers.

When the liquid is flowing equally the balls hover at the same level:

If a ball drops (relatively to the others), the flow is blocked or restricted.  

If the ball is rising higher (relatively to the others), the flow is too high, due to a leaking outlet or hose. 

More Info
  • Individual columns clip together so you can gang as many or as few columns as you need.

  • You can monitor up to three spray tips per column.
  • Metering orifices can be inserted to control flows ranging from 0.004 – 8.0 USGPM.
