Irrigation systems water filtration
Water filtration is very important to almost any irrigation system.
Appropriate filtration can help to extend the life and improve the maintenance of any irrigation system. For drip or micro sprinklers emitters, filtration is a basic need to avoid clogging. A sand grain, rust and other materials can block micro and mini and sprinklers’ nozzles which could cause unintentional plants dehydration. Many water sources like reservoirs, rivers and of course waste water contain a lot of organic materials such as alga and bacteria, that have to be removed especially from drip irrigation, mist spray [Nebulization] and micro-sprinkle systems, as small as they are. Not removing those substances can lead to creation of dirt accumulations and colonies of harmful material within the emitters and the rest of the equipment. Naturally, rust and sand grains are a safe platform for coating by organic materials and creating large chunks within the systems, causing a total blockage of water transferring.
Filtration methods common in Irrigation
Screen filters are probably the oldest and most common in irrigation systems. They are excellent in their ability to remove hard particles like metal and rust.
Disc Filters integrate the benefits of the old filtering methods screen as well as having their own unique advantages. Manual disc filters are useful for filtration of both sand granules and a variety of organic materials. Disc filters are the best choice for almost all drip and micro irrigation systems.
POLYETHYLENE TEREPHTHALATE ... better known as P.E.T. is used for various packaging applications because it is safe, strong, and shatterproof.
PET products are strong, stable, transparent and lightweight. These factors make is a smart choice for safety, ease of use, reduced cost of transportation & high visibility so your consumers can see exactly what they’re getting.
Piping made from polyethylene is a cost effective solution for a broad range of piping problems in municipal, industrial, marine, mining, landfill, duct and agricultural applications.
Polyethylene is strong, extremely tough and very durable. Whether you’re looking for long service, trouble-free installation, flexibility, resistance to chemicals or a myriad of other features, high-density polyethylene pipe will meet all your requirements.
