How to solve the pressure problem in a drip irrigation system

What is pressure compensation? Drip irrigation systems apply water to plants at very low flow rates. This minimizes water losses caused by evaporation and confines the water within the root zone of the plant, where it is truly necessary. Pressure compensation is a term used to describe an emitter that maintains the same water output [...]

The Quality of irrigation water

The Quality of irrigation water The quality of water and its characteristics influence the plant’s growth, the soil structure, and also the irrigation system itself. The quality of irrigation water refers mainly to its physical and chemical composition, or more in details to the mineral composition of water and to the presence of solid and [...]

Water flow rate in drip irrigation

When it comes to irrigation, one of the factors that cannot be underestimated is certainly the water flow rate. To better understand this topic, it is necessary to start from the definition of flow rate: "In fluid dynamics, flow rate is the amount of substance that crosses a section of area A in a unit [...]

Hydrocyclone filters for your drip irrigation system

Water filtration is very important for almost all irrigation systems, but especially for micro-irrigation. A proper filtration can help to extend the lifetime and improve maintenance of any irrigation system. Filtration is a fundamental requirement for the drip tapes in order to avoid clogging. A grain of sand, rust and other materials can block [...]
