Drip Irrigation Filters

Filtros-de-Riego

One of the disadvantages of drip irrigation installation is the risk of emitters clogging, so that a series of filters are used in plants to separate particles containing the irrigation water which might cause this shutter.

Types of Filters for Drip Irrigation

The filters are classified into the following types:

Filters area:

They are used to remove organic materials such as algae and coarse particles through a thick layer of sand contained in the filter through which is passed the water for filtration.

Hydrocyclones:

Performing particle separation from water by the effect of centrifugal force generated by the vortex, so heavy particles as the sand which can contain irrigation water are moved towards the walls after falling on the deposit placed in the bottom.

They are used when you have sand in suspension displayed in waters from deep wells.

Mesh filters:

the water is filtered by a mesh, which is defined by the number of openings per linear inch or mesh number. The particles larger than the size of the mesh openings are retained in the filter.

They are effective for lightly soiled waters with materials of inorganic origin of silt and sand size.

Mesh filters come in three forms, depending on the cleaning system having, manual, semiautomatic and automatic.

Mesh filters come in three forms, depending on the cleaning system: and automatic.

  • Authomatic
  • Manual
  • Semiautomatic.

These teams may possess self-cleaning systems, which perform cleaning by automatic backwash operations or manually in the case of mesh filters, rings and hydrocyclones.

Semi-automatic systems have mechanisms cleaned by backwashing operations through operation of this mechanism.
