No More Clogged Emitters

Dramm's PCAS larger pressure-compensated emitter is designed to reduce clogging and has a larger body that allows for a larger labyrinth, which allows more debris to pass through without collecting in the emitter and clogging the flow. Filtration is still a requirement with the PCAS like standard drip irrigation emitters, but the wider labyrinth reduces the amount of clogged emitters in a system by allowing debris to pass through with less restriction.
