Irrigation System - Winterisation
All irrigation systems should be protected against freezing conditions. This includes flushing out driplines & laterals, draining all pipes & components, ensuring pump houses/ irrigation rooms are insulated & heated plus insulating any exposed pipes, Components & valves.
Irrigation and pump controllers are advised to be left powered, this keeps the electrical component warm and reduces humidity build up.
For more advise and information on winterisation contact our experts to ensure your system protected over the winter periods.
Lightening Protection - 2-wire control system
2-wire control systems are commonly used across the UK in Agriculture, Horticulture and Sports Irrigation. These systems are a great cost effective long range solution for irrigation control and can also be used to transfer data.
However these systems should be installed and designed by trained engineers and under the guidance of manufacture specifications.
lightening damage is the single biggest risk to these system. If proper lightening protection is not installed, the losses can be anything from faulty valves or decoder issues to damage control systems leaving you with expensive bill.
IrriSmart offer a full checklist and advise on how to protect your system should you have any concerns. contact our experts for advise.
Air releasing systems - Can save upto 20% in energy costs.
IrriSmart Ltd offer a wide range of air valves to release unwanted air from irrigation supply pipes.
How is air a problem? - Air builds up in pipe lines on slopes. due to gravity the air pushes back against the water on the downward slopes. This in effect reduces the pipe diameter.
Because of this, the irrigation pump are required to working harder to give you your required flow rate and pressure. The more downward slope you have in your system the harder the pump is required to work.
With the IrriSmart properly located air valves, we can reduce how hard your pump is required to work and therefore reduce the power consumption on the pump saving you energy cost and prolonging the life of your pump.
For more advice on air release valves and where they should be installed our advisers are on hand to help.
- For systems that require regular draining down, you should install a air intake valve, this is covered in a separate link - "Air Introduction prolongs the life of your Irrigation Investment"
