Amiran Ltd provides the following irrigation systems:
Centre pivot irrigation
Amiran has a stock of centre pivot systems. Centre pivot irrigation is a form of sprinkler irrigation consisting of several segments of pipe (usually galvanised steel or aluminium) joined together and supported by trusses, mounted on wheeled towers with sprinklers positioned along its length. The system moves in a circular pattern and is fed with water from the pivot point at the centre of the arc.
These systems have proved themselves as highly appropriate and effective for varying types of terrain, cropping situations and irrigation requirements. Amiran’s centre pivot systems are well-constructed using quality materials, and every component is designed for peak reliability, performance and efficiency.
Overhead irrigation (sprinklers)
Overhead sprinklers are designed for a wide range of general field uses. Portable, semi-portable and solid set systems are used to meet the demanding needs of modern, economic irrigation systems.
Amiran stocks sophisticated overhead sprinklers, from small nozzle size with low flow rates to large nozzle size with high flow rates. These sprinklers are field tested and made from highly corrosion-resistant materials, ensuring a long life and minimum maintenance.
Amiran also provides drip irrigation systems, recognised as one of the most efficient irrigation system, particularly with regard to water consumption. A well-designed drip irrigation system looses practically no water from run off, deep percolation or evaporation. Drip irrigation also reduces water contact with crop leaves, stems, and fruit, creating conditions that deter the onset of diseases.
Drip irrigation scheduling can be managed precisely to meet crop demands, for increased yield and quality.
Micro jet irrigation
Amiran supplies a variety of micro-irrigation systems such as trickles, micro sprays and micro sprinklers. Micro-irrigation systems have a number of advantages over more conventional methods of irrigation. Less labour is required to operate micro-irrigation systems and as only small areas of the soil are irrigated, weed growth is minimised. The amount of water used can be closely managed to match the requirements of the crop.
Dam lining is one of the most cost effective and reliable choices for water storage. Amiran is a specialist in dam lining. All its liner projects are managed, supervised and installed by experienced technicians.
Small scale irrigation
