Toro announces the release of Neptune Flat Emitter Dripline in 8-mil and 18-mil wall thicknesses for both 5/8-inch and 7/8-inch internal diameters which augment the existing 10-, 13- and 15-mil wall thickness offering.
Neptune 8-mil is also available in an 8-inch emitter spacing for good wetting patterns.
Toro’s Neptune can now economically serve a wider variety of crop applications which demand thinner and thicker walled drip lines, including short-season vegetable crops and multi-season fruit crops.
Neptune utilizes a flat, molded emitter inside an extruded, thin-walled tube constructed from premium-quality materials to maximize the tube’s durability and performance. The molded emitter is highly resistant to plugging and requires only 120-mesh filtration.
This means Neptune can be used with challenging conditions, including poor water quality and rocky, abrasive terrain.
Neptune is available in five different emitter flow rates, including 0.16, 0.25, 0.30, 0.47 and 0.75 GPH, and seven different emitter spacings, including 8-inch (on 8 mil), 12-inch, 14-inch, 16-inch, 18-inch, 20-inch and 24-inch.
These sizes are designed to work in a wide variety of soil conditions, system application rates, and system flow requirements.
