Types of Sprinklers

Mini Sprinklers

Mini sprinklers have small to medium sized droplet and good uniformity of coverage with low precipitation rate, allowing longer watering time with less run-off.  Operate in low pressure of 15 PSI to high pressure of 50 PSI

Like conventional sprinklers mini sprinklers rotate full circle, half circle and quarter circle.

Foggers and Misters

It’s used to irrigate the entire area and maintain humidity / coolness for the tender plants.  Assembling and disassembling can be done easily and even nozzles are replaceable.

This can cover a radius of 1 meter at 2 kg/cm 2 pressure of water in the lateral. 

Droplet size ranges in between 80–100 micron, can be used for poly houses series and green houses where irrigation and humidity are required together.

Butterfly Sprinklers

Sturdy sprinkler comes with two types of inlet connections 12 mm and another with a pin connector to connect to 5 mm tube. Full circle sprinkler with a large droplet and operated under low pressure.  It is used as horticultural and landscape sprinkler.

½” bases adapt to any male threaded fitting / PVC riser. Used extensively and has long operational and smooth performance.

Maxi Sprinklers

These are used for crops like potatoes, onion and ground nuts. The bridge of the sprinkler also rotates along with the spreader thus leaving no shadow area and ensuring uniform wetting.  High volume sprinklers with a discharge of 300 to 600 liters with 1.5 bar pressure with 2 mm and 4 mm nozzles.
