The MPR 6001 regulator suits all lubing cups and nipples. 1/2 inch BSP inlet (white side) with 3/4 inch BSP outlet (brass side). Matches standard BSP fittings. This regulator allows all nipple systems to be used, with the potential of up to several hundred nipples or cups on lubing pipe. Remember water lines must be level and as straight as possible. Maxflo pressure regulators allow mains water input, with adjustable 150mm to 1 metre head output. Suits Lubing 4007, 4009, 4025 poultry drinkers and Minimaster chick drinkers. This water pressure regulator assumes mains pressure not fire fighting pressure, so its good to know wahat water pressure you have on site. This regulator is the toughest one we know about, New Zealand Made. Its cousin the MPR 6003 is for chicken drinkers that require or tolerate higher water pressures- up to 3 metres, these are the bell drinkers and triangular chicken nipple drinker kits, and 4001 trigger cups.
