Exclusive Expanding Labyrinth: Clogging Protection
Only Ro-Drip has an expanding flow-path that enlarges when you increase water pressure.
This unique feature helps expel foreign particles that would have permanently blocked other drip tapes. If you clog your Ro-Drip labyrinth, you can increase your system pressure which results in the expansion of the labyrinth flow channel, helping expel debris and normal operation to resume.
If you are new to drip irrigation, or have very poor water quality, why take the risk?
Choose Ro-Drip for maximum system protection.
Best Agronomic Performance
The benefits of closer emitter spacing are numerous, but are all related to more effective water movement.
When irrigating, you want water to move laterally, not deep down through the soil profile where it is either lost (including any fertilizers added) or is harder for plants to uptake. By keeping emitters spaced at close intervals, water flows laterally quicker, ensuring a continued wet strip along the row. In addition, more emitters per meter provides greater protection against crop loss if an emitter becomes blocked.
A great thing is when you use Ro-Drip, closer emitter spacing intervals do not need to come at an extra cost. Because Rivulis Ro-Drip has emitters manufactured into the tape itself, as opposed to inserted molded drippers, there is no cost difference per meter between 10 emitters per meter (10 cm spacing) and two emitters per meter (50 cm spacing).
Ro-Drip helps make your choice of emitter interval spacing an agronomic decision, not one based on your bank account.
Quality: You Can Depend Upon
Because it is your crop and livelihood on the line, we undertake extensive quality testing on every roll of Ro-Drip we manufacture to ensure the highest level of quality.
Sample tests we undertake include a flow rate test to check flow rate and variance, a burst and seal adhesion test to evaluate strength, and a visual inspection, including using a microscope to check channels are correctly manufactured.
Ro-Drip can perform at low pressure and therefore flow rates are calculated at 0.55 bar.
In some cases, you may increase pressure, which will in turn provide a higher flow rate from each emitter. For example, if you run Ro-Drip with 0.50 l/h emitter at 0.80 bar, each dripper will emit 0.62 l/h.
The table below provides a reference of the output per dripper of Ro-Drip at 0.55, 0.80 and 1.00 bar.
|Emitter Flow Rate (l/h)
Based on Nominal Pressure of 0.55 bar
|Flow rate (l/h) per emitter @ 0.80 bar||0.62||0.69||0.83||0.91||1.09||1.21|
|Flow rate (l/h) per emitter @ 1.00 bar||0.70||0.79||0.94||1.02||1.23||1.36|
