Specially developed for well water the Sandguard dripper employs an extra-large flowpath cross-section, long labyrinth and elevated filter to create an agricultural dripper with superb clogging resistance.

EXCEPTIONALLY UNIFORM FLOW

Dripper CV of <5% ensures flow uniformity between drip outlets.

COMPACT

An efficient dripper design allows a long flowpath while maintaining an economical overall size.

HIGH PERFORMANCE

Longer pipe runs with <0.5 emitting exponent and 2:1 pressure loss to flow loss.

EXTREMELY CLOG-RESISTANT

The long labyrinth and large cross-sectional design ensure that gradual and unavoidable sedimentation on the labyrinth surface do not clog the emitter.

ELEVATED FILTER

The elevated filter draws from water that is closer to the center of the pipe where water travels at high velocity. The higher velocity helps keep the filter surface clean while the elevated filter entrance inhibits solids from settling on it between flow cycles, regardless of dripper orientation in the pipe.

EASE OF MANUFACTURING

Increased OD enables high-accuracy and higher speed perforation.

BUILT-IN QUALITY AND DURABILITY

Constructed with 100% premium virgin polyethylene and additives for resistance to UV degradation and damage caused from commonly used chemicals and fertilizers.
