16mm LDPE irrigation pipe, 4 bar pressure rating for irrigation headers and above ground water supply pipe. Manufactured in black low density polythene.
Designed for low pressure irrigation systems in horticultural nurseries, garden centre, market gardens and private domestic gardens. Used for drip systems and small sprinkler systems in flower borders and garden beds. Low pressure pipe also has the advantage that the side wall of the pipe can be punched with a small hole punch to allow the connection of drippers and sprinkler take-off connections to the pipe. In horticulture the pipe can be used as a header for trickle irrigation lines.
Properties of low pressure irrigation pipe
Low-Density Polyethylene (LDPE) irrigation pipes are a vital component of modern horticulture and landscape irrigation facilitating efficient water distribution to crops and planting. LDPE, known for its flexibility and durability, offers several advantages in the field of irrigation. These pipes are lightweight, making installation and handling hassle-free. Their flexibility allows for easy manoeuvrability around obstacles, reducing installation complexity.
LDPE irrigation pipes are resistant to corrosion, chemicals, and UV radiation, ensuring a long lifespan even in harsh outdoor conditions. Their smooth interior surface minimizes friction, enhancing water flow and reducing energy consumption. Furthermore, LDPE pipes are cost-effective and environmentally friendly, as they are recyclable and contribute to water conservation efforts.
Fittings for low pressure irrigation pipe
Fittings for low pressure irrigation pipe include 16mm barbed fittings and 16pozilock fittings. Barbed fittings are low cost and produce a neat joint, with the fitting inside the pipe itself. Pozilock fittings are bulkier but are more resistant to coming off, making them ideal for harder to reach areas such as roof decks.
