Drip Systems

A drip system, or a watering system, has a major influence on the irrigation of a crop. Drip irrigation is used to drip water into the plants in combination with crop protection agents and fertilisers. The drip system is important to give the right amount of water, fertilizers and crop protection agents to the crop.
  • What kind of drippers are available?

    A dripper is an element or capillary hose that doses the water to the plant. In general, there are three kind of drippers: capillary drippers, labyrinth drippers and pressure compensated and self-closing drippers.

  • Cleaning the drip system after cultivation

    The drip system provides your crop with just the right amount of water. Contamination of the drip system because of water spreading pathogens/germs and algae can cause a biofilm to develop in the drip system.

  • Cleaning the drip system during cultivation

    While inspecting the dripper system, contamination can be noted. Drip system contamination negatively affects water delivery and, with that, the crops. Therefore the drip system needs to be cleaned in case of contamination. You can do this during as well as after cultivation.

Choosing a drip system

When you choose to water via a drip system, you can distinguish between three different systems: capillary system, labyrinth system or an inline system. The differences between these three systems are mainly in the desired water delivery.

Complete drip systems

A drip system consists of a system of pipes, including water pipes, drip hoses and drip heads. A drip hose ensures equal water delivery within the crop. However, every crop has a different need. Therefore, a number of factors should be taken into account when choosing the right irrigation tube. A dripper is the element or tube that doses the water at the plant. The choice of a dripper also depends on various factors: cultivation, bed length, number of drops per meter and desired water delivery. Not every dripper can be combined with every drip tube.

Cleaning drip systems

In a drip system pollution can occur, causing germs and algae to spread, resulting in a biofilm in the drip system. Therefore it is important to clean the drip system regularly. You can clean the system during cultivation as well as after cultivation.
