A method and apparatus for controlling the amount of fluid (12) pumped to a using implement by a fluid distribution system (10) is the subject of this application. The apparatus includes a weir chamber (40) into which fluid diverted from a fluid supply line (22) into a return line (36) floods. A head is generated in the chamber (40), the height of the head depending upon the volumetric rate of residual flow through the return line (36). Sensing means (52, 54) are provided in the chamber (40) to sense the volumetric rate of flow of diverted fluid. The amo...
In combination with a fluid distribution system including a reservoir containing a supply of fluid, a fluid supply line conveying fluid from the reservoir to an implement using the fluid at a variable rate, a plurality of pumps for moving fluid through the supply line, a flow regulator interposed in the supply line to control the amount of fluid delivered to the implement, and a fluid return line channeling fluid diverted from the supply line by the regulator back to the reservoir; apparatus for governing flow of fluid from the reservoir through the supp...
