A drip irrigation installation requires a series of filters to separate the particles contained in the irrigation water since there is a risk of clogging of the emitters.
Types of Filters
Sand filters: It consists of a thick layer of siliceous sand contained in the filter, separating organic materials such as algae and thick particles.
Hydrocyclones: They are used when there are suspended sands, typical of deep wells, these heavy particles that contain irrigation water such as sand, is separated from the particles of water by the effect of the centrifugal force generated by the whirlwind, moving them towards the walls and subsequently falling into the tank located at the bottom.
Mesh filters with automatic pressure difference cleaning.
