The drip inserted or drip interlinea, are installed interspersed in the pipeline. For this purpose the pipe station carrier is cut and proceeds to assemble the dropper being sealingly attached to the pipe. One of its advantages is that it can be replaceable in case of breakage or clogging.
The pinched drippers are droppers that are installed in bypass line or by inserting the dropper through the wall of the pipe porta emitters. Commonly referred to as droppers button.
There are many types of pinched drippers. The different qualities that may have in their design are:
- Adjustable Droppers: They have the ability to provide flow control.
- Removable Droppers: They can be removed without removing the part of the dropper that is pinned to the pipeline.
- Self-compensating drippers: They have a membrane which adjusts the flow rate to the system pressure so as to maintain the flow rate in a range of pressures determined.
- Anti draining droppers: They have a membrane causing the closure of the dropper when the system pressure decreases avoiding water outlet when irrigation is not performed.
