Dripline improvements expand irrigation design
Toro has unveiled a new emitter flow rate for its BlueLine dripline, which includes a 0.26 gallons per hour pressure-compensating emitter.
The 0.26 GPH pressure-compensating emitter is the latest flow rate to complement Toro’s other BlueLine PC flow rates of 0.42, 0.53, and 1 GPH.
BlueLine pressure-compensating emitters provide resistance to plugging, durability, and flow accuracy. BlueLine PC dripline can be used on permanent crops utilizing any installation technique: Above ground, below ground, or hanging on a wire. Additional BlueLine PC product features include: Accurate flow rates from 10 – 60 pounds per square inch; emitter flow rates available in three hose dimensions: 16 mm, 18 mm, and 20 mm; self-flushing diaphragm flushes during operation and shutdown, improving clogging resistance and providing longer life to the system; and identifiable emitter location during installation and operation.
The new 0.26 GPH low flow rate gives growers the option to have longer runs on permanent crops and enables the use of smaller pipe or existing submains, without sacrificing performance.
