1/2" NPT FLOW CONTROL VALVE Brand new, WOLVERINE by PRINCE model WFC-800 inline flow control valve. Designed to provide flow control and shut-off in one flow direction while providing free flow in the opposite direction. Color bands for fast return to previous setting. Set screw to lock valve to any setting. Carbon steel body.
I have a dump trailer with power up an down. It comes down way too fast and slams down. Could this be used in the return line to slow down the flow? Slowing the fluid on the down stroke but allowing it to pass full volume in the other direction.
A: Yes this is an ideal application for this valve. It will it to raise at full pump speed yet restrict flow to slow down the lowering rate.

How many turns of the adjuster are required to go from zero flow to full flow? Can this item be disassembled?
A: The knob has a 5.5 turn range. There doesn't appear to be any good way to disassemble it.
