Designed to address a range of challenges from low water quality to steep or varied topographies, our drippers and dripperlines come with a wide range of different specifications and features. Scroll down to explore the range in full, or have a read of our FAQs to get the basics on drippers and dripperlines.
What’s the difference between a dripperline and a dripper?
‘Dripperlines’ are pipes with evenly spaced drippers seamlessly welded inside. And ‘drippers’ are the emitters that deliver mixtures of water and nutrients directly, in measured quantities and at regulated pressures, to each individual plant.
If your plants are distributed evenly across your field, orchard or greenhouse, you’ll mostly rely on dripperlines to irrigate and fertigate. But if you’ve got irregular spacing between your plants, you’ll likely need to place individual drippers to make sure every plant gets water and nutrients sent directly to its root zone.
What’s the difference between PC and non-PC?
Pressure-compensated (PC) drippers are designed for steep and varied topographies or for long fields. Whatever the pressure, they maintain a consistent flow rate, allowing you to build an effective precision irrigation system no matter how tricky your landscape is or how long are your crop rows. Non-PC drippers are ideal for flat topographies, or shorter crop rows.
Why does dripperline wall thickness matter?
The thicker the dripperline, the more durable it’s going to be to external damage or to system pressure. It will offer greater resistance to physical damages and will allow operating the system with a wider range of pressures. Thinner dripperlines are better-suited for removal every few years or even every crop cycle. They’re also less expensive so replacing them isn’t a huge cost. Medium-walled dripperlines sit somewhere in between, offering a balance between cost and longevity.
The real test of our products’ quality is in the field, getting the best growers in the world the best possible results. But we’re also proud to say that all our drippers and dripperlines are ISO 9261 certified.
