Reliable & Efficient Dripper Nozzles
Irrigation using drip nozzles is much more water efficient than sprinkler systems, as very little water is lost to evaporation. Modern dripper nozzles are very reliable and have very consistent outputs. Pressure compensated drippers on a properly designed irrigation system ensure that the output of the drippers on a long pipe run is unaffected by the pressure drop in the pipe – meaning the first and last dripper produce exactly the same output. Non-leakage irrigation drip nozzles have a shut-off mechanism which prevents ‘after-dripping’ at the end of the watering cycle – essential for pulsed irrigation systems.
Drip irrigation, a revolutionary agricultural technique, traces its roots back to ancient civilizations. The first recorded use of drip irrigation dates to around 600 BC when the Egyptians employed clay pots filled with water to slowly release moisture to plant roots. Later, in the 20th century, the development of plastic materials and efficient water pumps enabled the modernization of drip irrigation systems.
The true breakthrough came in the 1950s, when Simcha Blass, an Israeli engineer, designed the first practical and efficient drip irrigation system. His innovative approach involved using plastic tubing and emitters to precisely deliver water to plant roots, conserving water and increasing crop yields. Since then, drip irrigation has become a global agricultural staple, offering water efficiency, improved crop quality, and sustainability in farming practices.
