Rivulis’ Latest drip irrigation products and new factories
Since 1966, Rivulis has been developing new drip solutions and technologies to meet growers’ needs
What are the key product and operational achievements of 2019?
The first insect repellent drip line/tape.
X-Pell is intended for the grower who has experienced the hassle and cost of insect damage to his drip line/tape and who is looking for a solution which has proven effective in preventing insect damage to the drip line/tape.
The Rivulis X-Pell patent-pending technology goes to the core of your drip line/tape, blending the minimum amount of insect repellent needed directly into the plastic structure to protect your drip line/tape from insect damage, from the inside out.
We launched “X-Pell” and we have received amazing feedback since then.

Single season tape, designed to stretch – not snap.
The T-Tape VEGI-HE is ideal for single season crops. Retrieval is easier as the tape is designed with high-elongation properties.
T-Tape 4 mil
An ultra thin T-Tape 4 Mil is one of the thinnest drip tapes available and enables longer roll lengths resulting in easier installation in field with less roll change-overs.
H6000 PE Layflat
This amazing product has 3 big advantages –
- Greater reliability than PVC layflat.
- No Leaks around the outlet.
- Easy and fast to install.
No Leaks around the Outlet results in:
- Cleaner fields – fewer weeds
- Less Maintenance
- Save time and money – easy to install with the outlets pre-installed and 1/3 the weight of traditional PVC layflat
- A unique process that creates a strong and durable weld between the outlets and the hoses makes the H6000 PE a long lasting solution.
