Floppy SprinklerTM

 

The looming water crisis shifted the focus from low efficient irrigation sprinklers with high energy requirements to high efficient irrigation sprinklers with low energy requirements. Floppy SprinklerTM is the ideal sprinkler technology to meet these needs.

The concept of the sprinkler is unique. The flow of water secured by the flow controller guarantees a constant flow of water moving through the silicone tube to cut the stream of water into even medium-size droplets similar to rain, ensuring a very high efficiency with minimum evaporation loss, due to little or no mist formation. The silicone tube is made of Silopren material, which has an outdoor life expectancy of more than 30 years. This revolutionary design concept has an 89% efficiency and results in water- and energy savings. The sprinkler has a five-year guarantee against any manufacturing default.

Floppy Sprinkler (Pty) Ltd has developed and patented worldwide, a new-generation irrigation system called the Floppy SprinklerTM system with the following core benefits

Increase in yield

The Floppy solid set system irrigates the total root area, resulting in optimum root development for top quality and yields.

Distribution Uniformity

The Floppy SprinklerTM is the only sprinkler in the world with a built-in flow controller, ensuring very high distribution uniformity.

Water- and Energy Saving

Substantial water- and energy savings due to high application efficiency as a result of consistent flow of water, irrespective of pressure fluctuations.

Floppy SprinklerTM Technology Gives You Rain on Demand

FLOPPY SPRINKLERTM IS THE MOST EFFICIENT SPRINKLER IN THE WORLD, TESTED AND CONFIRMED IN CO-EFFICIENT UNIFORMITY, DISTRIBUTION UNIFORMITY AND APPLICATION EFFICIENCY

The concept of the sprinkler is unique. The flow of water secured by the flow controller guarantees a constant flow of water moving through the silicone tube to cut the stream of water into even medium-size droplets, similar to rain. High efficiency with minimum evaporation loss is achieved, due to little or no mist formation. The silicone tube is made of Silopren material, which has an outdoor life expectancy of more than 30 years. This revolutionary design concept offers 89% efficiency and 30% – 40% water saving.

The Sprinkler is flow control equipped, allowing fertigation and pest control to be accurately applied through the system.

The golden thread running through the product offering is water- and energy saving with a strong emphasis on environmental sustainability. Low maintenance and very long lifespan of over 25 years have been proven.

The Floppy sprinkler is installed on an Overhead Cable System or a Riser system. Innovative installation methods solve many problems in small and large Agriculture projects. For other industries such as Solar panel cleaning and Fire protection, the sprinkler is connected directly to the poly pipe and mounted on the roof or structure.
