The Multi Outlet drip sets are bundles of 4mm tubes that split the water from a Mini-Manifold to each end point dripper. Two types of end drippers are available:
The Self Forming (SF) Micro Dripper is based on a male part labyrinth and a female part sleeve. The Micro Dripper is formed by inserting the male labyrinth into the female sleeve. The female part also includes a tiny spike. This product can easily be cleaned when clogged simply by pulling out the male part and removing the dirt.
For a pressure water system the SF Multi Outlet set is fed via a mother dripper that controls the flow. The mother drippers are available at 2 L/hr and 4 L/hr and the Mini-Manifold is available with 4 and 6 outlets. The lowest flow is achieved by combining the 2 L/hr with the 6 outlets, i.e. 0.33 L/hr.
A set of 6 outlets in a garden application is shown in the picture below. Click here to view or download details of the SF set structure, its performance and applications for agriculture nurseries.
This type of Multi Outlet Micro Drippers can be used without the Mother Dripper in any Gravity Irrigation System and in particular for greenhouse applications.
The SF dripper is also designed to be inserted into a female Barb Socket and directly into PE tubes (16 or 20 mm laterals). Download SF dual use details and applications. This method also fits to various dimensions of plots in Gravity Irrigation Systems.
The Multi-Outlet Regulated Drippers are bundles of the same structure, but with regulated end point drippers available at 2 and 4 L/hr each. This set is connected via the Mini-Manifold directly to the pressure line (without a Mother Dripper). Regulation at the end point is important merely for irrigation points located at various elevation levels, as shown in the pictures below.
