Rivulis T-Tape – Your Drip Irrigation Solution

What makes Rivulis T-Tape unique? 

There are the number of inlets in every emitter in T-Tape. These small inlets, built directly into the tape, work like microfilters to help stop contaminants entering the emitter. But because it’s T-Tape, it doesn’t just have a few inlets, T-Tape has up to 211 inlets per emitter! So even if a few get blocked, the tape still keeps going due to the extreme excess redundancy built into every single emitter.
Still not convinced? How about the reverse chevron flow track? Not just a couple of fancy words, this specially engineered section keeps the water turbulent and solids in suspension to help prevent the tape from blocking.
Plus, there is the icing on the cake… the knife cut outlet. The knife cut provides a precision incision that closes on shut-off. This makes it hard for dirt to get in, helping to protect your system.

Correct spacing between each drip emitter can make a big difference. Typically close dripper spacing of 10–30 cm intervals are used due to the need for more uniform crops and better irrigation system efficiencies. The benefits of closer dripper spacing are numerous, but are all related to more effective water movement. When irrigating, you want water to move laterally, not deep down through the soil profile where it is either lost (including any fertilisers added) or is harder for plants to uptake. By keeping drippers spaced at close intervals, water flows laterally quicker, ensuring a continued wet strip along the row. A great thing is when you use T-Tape, closer dripper spacing intervals do not need to come at an extra cost. Because Rivulis T-Tape has emitters manufactured into the tape itself, as opposed to inserted molded drippers, there is no cost difference per metre
between 10 drippers per metre (10 cm spacing) and two drippers per metre (50 cm spacing).

Recommended dripper interval spacing
10–20 cm | Strawberries and leafy veg
20–30 cm | All vegies except leafy greens
30 cm | Melons, cane & cotton

Iplex Polyethylene Pipe

Think Water Mildura is your supplier of Iplex rural and metric polyethylene pipe.

Polyethylene (PE) pipes have been produced in Australia since the mid 1950’s. Whilst initially in small diameters for industrial and agricultural applications, PE pipes are now available in diameters as large as 2000mm.  The first Australian Standard was released in 1962 and Iplex Pipelines commenced production in the early seventies. Usage has grown rapidly with over 40,000 tonnes of PE pipes being produced annually in Australasia. Polyethylene has become one of the most widely used and versatile of all plastic pipe systems.

POLiplex pipes are used for all types of liquids and gases. Common applications are:

  • Mine water supply
  • Irrigation supply
  • Mineral slurry pipelines
  • Domestic water supply house service connections
  • Vacuum and gravity sewer systems
  • Submarine pipelines
  • Sewer rising mains
  • Trenchless pipelines installed by directional drilling, slip lining and pipe bursting methods
  • Process pipe work
  • Compressed air services
  • Electric and telecommunication cable conduits
  • Natural gas transmission and reticulation

POLIplex PE pipes may be joined economically using thermal butt-welding equipment. Diameters of up to DN 110 are more commonly joined using Iplex compression couplings complying with AS/NZS 4129. These fittings provide a system for making joints quickly and easily, which can be undone and reused when altering the system layout. An alternative form of welding PE is the electrofusion system where heating elements are embedded in PE sockets. These sockets form part of a coupling or other fitting and require a controlled electrical input from a welding machine to produce a welded joint.
