The Important Irrigator of the Drip Irrigation System: the Drip Irrigation Pipe

The drip irrigation pipe is an important irrigator in the drip irrigation system. It drips water and nutrients needed by crops into the soil in the root zone evenly and slowly, drop by drop, according to the water requirements of crops through the low-pressure pipe system and the emitter mounted on the capillary pipe.

The inlaid labyrinth throttling dripper and the inlaid labyrinth compensation dripper are generally adopted. Water which passes through it is in turbulence flow. It boasts great self-cleaning and anti-clogging capability. At the same time its corrosion resistance and aging resistance capability is excellent. When manufacturers provide drip irrigation pipes for sale, they can provide products with different flow rates and wall thickness to meet the needs of different irrigation environments. It is suitable for field crops, orchards and trees greening in areas where water resources and labor are in shortage, which is widely used in greenhouses, sheds, open planting and greening projects.

The drip irrigation pipe can be divided into the pressure compensated drip irrigation pipe and the non-pressure compensated drip irrigation pipe according to the way of discharging water. According to the structure it can be divided into the inlaid drip irrigation pipe and the inter-pipe drip irrigation pipe.

Cautions when using the drip irrigation pipe:

1. The pipe and drippers in drip irrigation of the inline drip pipe are easy to be blocked, which require high water quality, so that it is necessary to install a filter.

2. The drip irrigation cannot adjust the field microclimate, so that it is not suitable for freezing irrigation, and we cannot use drip irrigation system to apply manure in the vegetable irrigation.

3. The drip irrigation requires a high investment, so that the economic benefits of crops should be considered.

4. Pay attention to the compaction of the mulch film during the laying process of the drip irrigation belt, so that the mulch film should be as close to the drip irrigation belt as possible, and there should be no space between the mulch film and the drip irrigation belt. Avoid focusing sunlight through water droplets. Before sowing, the land should be leveled to reduce the phenomenon of more pits and depressions in the land. Prevent the soil, miscellaneous stones and weeds from lifting the mulch film, which may result in water vapor's amassing under the mulch film and then forming the lens effect and burning drip irrigation zone. When laying, the drip irrigation belt can be buried to avoid focal burns.
