Smart Valve

Nairn Smart Valve

Tired of constantly attending your pump shed to adjust your gate valve? Want to protect your irrigation system and extend its lifetime?

The Nairn Smart Valve controller is connected to an actuated butterfly valve, fitted to pump head works. The controller monitors the mainline, constantly adjusting the valve to maintain control.

Nairn Smart Valve can give you control on up to three zones of feedback, select from:

  • Flow
  • Delivery pressure
  • Motor current
  • Well level
  • Suction pressure

Since we installed the Nairn Smart Valve we have not exceeded our ECAN consented flow rate.

Get ahead of game and irrigate with peace of mind using Nairn Smart Valve - motorised valve control for submersible pump, surface pump or scheme water users.

Case Study

Brendan Dolan was having challenges keeping his pump pressures and flow rates adjusted correctly so he could meet ECAN consent obligations.

“I needed to stop the pumps going overflow consent. I saw the Nairns Smart Valve in their newsletter, it looked like a good option”

“It’s been great, it’s saved a few headaches and a lot of time going back and forward to the pump shed to make sure everything’s running properly. All we do now is push start and it does the rest for you.”

Subsequently Brendon has installed a second Smart Valve and is now looking at a third one as he explains:

“The first smart valve was to control when we were shutting off the Briggs to move it, as it puts a lot of pressure into the pivots.

The second was for when we change from laterals to a gun and Briggs, this one can easily go over the consent, not enough or too much pressure. Now we have an even pressure and flow rate.

The third is for when we have two pumps running together, that run three irrigation machines and once again getting the right flow and pressure rates is going to be easier.”

“I’d recommend Nairns Smart Valves to any farmer looking for a cost effective option that makes irrigating easier and keeps ECAN happy”
