Non-PC Leach Mining Dripper with Unparalleled Clogging Resistance
Specially developed for leach mining, the Minoro dripper employs an extra-large flowpath cross-section, long Omniflow labyrinth and elevated filter to create a mining dripper with best in class clogging resistance.

EXCEPTIONALLY UNIFORM FLOW
Dripper CV of <3% ensures flow uniformity between drip outlets.
A long labyrinth with large cross-sectional area provides a long flowpath for a gradual drop in pressure over the entire emitter.
Longer pipe runs with <0.5 emitting exponent and 2:1 pressure loss to flow loss.
Patented Omniflow design eliminates labyrinth dead zones to maintain consistent turbulence, reducing the settling of suspended solids to prevent clogging.
The long labyrinth and large cross-sectional design ensure that gradual and unavoidable sedimentation on the labyrinth surface do not clog the emitter.
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.
Minoro™ performs flawlessly, maintaining nominal flowrates despite 240 to 70 mesh grit contained solution. Clog-tested and verified by the US Center for Irrigation Technology (CIT) using the single and double grit leach mining clog test.
