Hydro PC/PCND Drip Line

Hydro PC/PCND Drip Line Features

  • Highly resistant to clogging
  • Continuous self-flushing operation
  • Pressure compensating

RELIABILITY AND DEPENDABILITY: 20 YEARS AND COUNTING

For over 20 years, Hydro PC has been synonymous with reliability.

Farmers from Europe, to Chile, to the USA trust the Hydro PC range of products for long-term horticultural applications including orchards, vineyards and greenhouses.

Manufactured in 7 countries, and exported globally, Hydro PC remains one of the most popular drip lines in the world for one simple reason – you can depend on it season after season.

 

 

CYLINDRICAL EMITTER: EXTRA TOUGH DESIGN
The Hydro PC range cylindrical drippers are large, tough and can tolerate harsh environments. That’s why you will see Hydro drip line used everywhere from the vineyards in Europe, to orchards in Australia.

 

DUAL OUTLETS: BUILT-IN REDUNDANCY
Unlike other emitters with just one outlet, if a Hydro PC emitter outlet becomes blocked, a second outlet on the opposing side provides redundancy to the emitter. An additional benefit of the dual outlets is that it doesn’t matter what direction you lay the tube.

Dual outlets are standard in all Hydro PC configurations with 15 cm and greater spacing.

MULTI-ZONE INLET FILTER: PROTECTING YOUR EMITTERS YEAR AFTER YEAR
Due to its unique cylindrical design, Hydro PC is built with a larger inlet filter than most competing drip lines.

Did you know Hydro PC has 600% more effective filtration area than the leading competitor?

 

PC OR PCND: What to use?

PC
Stands for: Pressure compensating

What does it do: Within a relatively large pressure range, PC ensures the same flow per dripper regardless of what the pressure is at that point of the tube. So the dripper at lower elevation will emit the same amount of water as
the dripper at the highest point

Where to use: Undulating ground and long-run lengths

 

PCND
Stands for: Pressure compensating & no-drain
Also known as: CNL

What does it do: In addition to pressure compensating, the dripper seals when pressure falls below 1 m pressure (1.2 m pressure in 12 mm Hydro PCND) to stop water draining out of the tube at shut-off

Where to use: Pulse irrigation, sub-surface and highly undulating ground. Also ideal for greenhouse applications.

WHITE DRIP LINE: DISCOVER THE BENEFITS

For your next drip line installation, consider the many benefits of using WHITE drip line. Available for all Hydro PC and PCND configurations.

  • Absorbs less radiation than black tube.
  • Gets your water temperature lower in your drip line. Very helpful in pulsing applications where water remains in the tube between irrigating.
  • Co-extruded strong and durable manufacturing process.
  • Great for greenhouses where the white tube provides additional reflective surfaces.
