The Advantages of Mechanized Irrigation

Mechanized Irrigation (mainly center pivots, but also laterals & other irrigation machines etc.) is a modern method of crop irrigation that has revolutionized agriculture since its invention in the mid-20th century. This innovative technique involves the use of large, rotating irrigation machines mounted on wheels, which pivot around a central point,

Irrigation modernization is imperative for optimizing agricultural productivity, especially in regions facing water scarcity and burgeoning demand. The Santa Cruz de Alcolea Irrigation Consortium embarked on a comprehensive modernization initiative in 2016, forming the UTE Alcolea to spearhead this transformation.

Hydraulic Flow Control

When we need to limit the flow using hydraulic methods (as opposed to electronic methods), the flow is not continuously measured & sampled (only during setting). Therefore, pilots are designed to hydraulically sense the differential of pressure or force/velocity associated with the varying flow.

How can two pilots operate on one hydraulic control valve?

Recently, one of our customers asked how is it possible for two pilots to operate on the same hydraulic control valve without interfering with each other's operation. In this short blog, we will describe how hydraulic control valves with two pilots operate.

Water Flow Control Valves

What are Flow Control Valves?

Flow control valves are designed to maintain a constant pre-set maximum flow regardless of fluctuating demand or varying system pressure. Flow limiting is required at the outlets from main systems to consumers like secondary systems (main line to hydrant line; hydrant line to distribution line), reservoirs, etc. in order to protect the supplying system from over consumption.
