Valley options for sprinkler placement

Placement of sprinklers is also accomplished by different application positions. These include drops (flexible hose, semi-rigid and fixed), boom back and alternatives.

Sprinkler heads placed on drops provide significant improvement over top of the pipe sprinklers when you are concerned about minimising water drift and evaporation. Lowering the position of the sprinkler reduces spray and drift caused by wind, and evaporation due to low humidity and high temperatures. They are available in many styles to fit your needs.

Drops
Flexible Hose

  • Can be drug through crop
  • Available in 3/4 inch hose
Solutions for Reducing Application Intensity
Goosenecks and Truss Rod Hose Slings

  • Using the span structure to increase the wetted area while using the same amount of water, lowers application intensity
  • Non-corrosive UV-resistant thermoplastic construction for longer life costs
Rigid Galvanized

  • Utilizes 3/4 inch, schedule 40 galvanised steel
  • Available for truss rod height application
Control Valve

  • The 800P End Gun Control Valve works without an electric solenoid when used with a booster pump Boom Backs
  • Discharge water behind drive unit rather than over the wheel
  • Utilised with directional spray units to help keep wheel track dry
Semi-Rigid Polyethylene

  • Corrosion resistant
  • Minimal flexibility
Valley All-Range Pressure Regulator

  • Use one model for the entire sprinkler package
  • Six models available, 6-30 psi
  • Precise water application in hilly terrain
U-pipes, drop weights, fittings

  • Additional options to complete any drop sprinkler application
Valley Low-Energy Nozzle (LEN)

  • Wide variety of available pads
  • Unique shape for movement through the crop
  • 6-40 psi (0,4-2,8 bars)
  • 24-36 feet (7,3-11 m) wetted diameter
  • Chemigation and Part Circle pads
  • Large diameter of coverage, low application intensity
  • Low pressure operation
  • Single, double or triple deflector pads divide the nozzle flow into larger number of streams
Remote Drains

  • Minimise wheel tracks in field
  • Move drain water away from wheel tracks
  • Run drain water through sprinkler drop hose
End Gun

  • Valley offers a full range of end gun selections to maximise your irrigated acres
  • Booster pumps can also be paired with the end gun when more pressure is needed
