Precise Extraction Control Wellhead
The PC 1000FX Precise Control Wellhead is a key element in modern landfill gas (LFG) collection systems. Created to assist in the control of landfill gas for regulatory and energy production requirements, the PC 1000FX is a quality intensive, cost-effective alternative to field fabricated wellheads. The primary function of the PC 1000FX is to control landfill gas that is extracted or vented from landfill gas wells. The PC 1000FX also aids in the required data collection for well control and monitoring. Numerous sizes and models are available for vertical well connections, horizontal well connections, and retrofit applications for both above and below ground systems. With the PC 1000FX we've combined accuracy and reliability with low life-cycle costs to produce the perfect choice for any landfill.

Superior Design and Performance
The PC 1000FX provides uninterrupted, maintenance-free operation. It is constructed of rugged SCH 80 PVC or HDPE and uses a High Impact PVC flow control valve or HDPE Ball Valve to throttle the LFG flow, as well as quick disconnect fittings on all monitoring ports. In addition, the PC 1000FX uses a unique sliding compression fitting between the wellhead and the well casing, producing a leak-proof seal while allowing easy adjustment of the wellhead elevation (optional).
The PC 1000FX is available for all flow ranges, and will provide the most accurate and reliable flow control and metering for your LFG application.
PCFX Flow Meter
Specifically designed for the landfill gas industry, the PCFX Flow Meter provides accurate flow metering with no maintenance. The PCFX offers unitised PVC or HDPE construction, integrating the orifice plate into a unique coupling containing the metering taps. This one-piece construction eliminates any moving parts and prevents plugging by placing the metering taps outside the inside diameter of the pipe where particulates and moisture migration are minimised. Additionally, the orifice bore is configured to prevent damming of fluid within the unit and to minimise head loss.
Due to its design and its reliable, +2% accuracy at full scale, the PCFX provides the PC 1000FX with the best accuracy, the best flow range, and the most reliable flow meter available for landfill gas applications.
