:: Leach Pressure Regulation  

US-based Senninger Irrigation Inc. believes that its Prospector pressure regulator is ideal for heap irrigation systems. According to the company,the regulator maintains constant preset outlet pressures with inlet pressures, of up to 827 kPa.

Senninger says that the ability to maintain outlet pressure is particularly important in typical low-pressure drip systems, where fluctuations in pressure are most critical to overall system performance. The unit is designed for flow rates from 0.008-0.5 litre/s and outlet pressures of 69-276 kPa at 34 kPa increments. The unit is suitable for the high-pH cyanide solutions used in gold and silver leaching, and the low-pH solutions for copper leaching, and can be adapted for use with 18 mm or 20 mm diameter tubing using 19 mm male-hose threads. The unit is corrosion- and UV-resistant, and water tested for accuracy prior to shipping.
