PGA Solenoid

Primary Applications:

Combination globe / angle con?guration Heavy-duty PVC construction Manual internal bleed with 1/4-turn of the solenoid Solenoid with convenient handle Slow closing to prevent water hammer and subsequent system damage Filtered pilot-?ow One-piece solenoid with captured plunger Encapsulated solenoid Flow control Accomodates field-installed PRS-Dial pressure regulating modules adjustable from 1,0 to 7,0 bar

Features and Benefits:

Globe and angle configuration for flexibility in design and installation.
Rugged PVC construction for reliable operation.
Normally closed, forward flow design.
Double-filtered pilot flow to resist debris and clogging of solenoid ports.
Slow closing to prevent water hammer and subsequent system damage.
Manual internal bleed operates the valve without allowing water into the valve box. Allows pressure regulator to be adjusted without turning the valve on at the controller.
One-piece solenoid design with captured plunger and spring for easy servicing. Prevents loss of parts during field service.
Non-rising flow control handle adjusts water flow as needed.
Accommodates optional, field-installed PRS-D pressure regulating module to ensure optimum sprinkler performance.
Accepts latching solenoid for use with Rain Bird battery-operated controllers.
Optional purple flow control handle for non-potable water applications PGA-NP-HAN1 (1" and 1 1/2"); PGA-NP-HAN2 (2").


100-PGA: 1" (26/34)
150-PGA: 1 1/2" (40/49)
200-PGA: 2" (50/60)
All models available with BSP threads.
Rain Bird recommends flow rates in the supply line not to exceed 7.5 feet/second (2,3 m/s) in order to reduce the effects of water hammer.
For flows below 5 GPM (1 m3/h; 32 l/s), Rain Bird recommends use of upstream filtration to prevent debris from collecting below the diaphragm.
For flows below 10 GPM (2 m3/h; 63 l/s) Rain Bird recommends the flow control stem be turned down two full turns from the fully open position.
