Description

Button drippers

Button drippers are irrigation tools often use in supplying water to plants at very low rates. Generally they are drip emitters that ensure delivery of water to the plants below their canopies (below the stem). Button drippers come in various color codes .i.e. black, green, blue, red and green colors. Even though they come in these color codes, their efficiencies are of the same notch. Colors do not affect the functionality but they are just for identification.

As the recent tools venturing into drip irrigation systems, button drippers are capable of emitting water from the main pipes at different rates of 1 liter per hour to over 60 liters per hour.

Because of this ability to emit water at different rates, they are good for farming of crops like passion fruits , oranges, mangoes, tomato trees, and avocados, lawn irrigation, tree nurseries’ banana trees and more other sectors. Button dripper’s specification is very important for an irrigation engineer since it helps to estimate water requirements for the entire season for the growth of crops. This estimate also helps in sourcing in water in case of shortage

Components of button drippers

Button dripper is  of plastic polyethylene in nature selling in packets or pieces. The wall thickness typically ranges from 1 mm–1.3 mm.

Thicker wall drippers are commonly  for permanent subsurface drip irrigation whereas thinner walled tapes are for temporary type systems common in high-value crops

Button dripper is  design to discharge one liter of water per hour to over 60 liters of water per hour. This discharge ensures efficient and economical water usage.

the major determinant of the production cost is the economical water budget and  this dictates the type of crop

However, Broad leaved plants require much water as compared to small leaved plants. This will affect the button dripper water discharge capacity selection

Types of button drippers

  1. Adjustable button drippers – these drippers have threads on the crown where the lid with emitters is slide onto. The threads are made in such a way that at every thread, water is emitted at different flow rates according to water plant requirements.
  2. Non- adjustable button drippers. In this type of dripper, water is emitted at the designed rate by the manufacturer. The crown does not have the threads thus it does not have a lid however, this type of drippers provide water equally and uniformly to plants.

 

How button dripper works

Button dripper uses the swirling -flow-path design producing a turbulent flow that ensures good watering abilities thus preventing the known problems of clogging.  They are Available in flow rates of 0.7 liters per to over 60 liters per hour. The operating pressure range of 15 to 25 PSI (and the higher pressure the higher the flow rate)

When buying the button drip emitters, you can find them in packets of 5, 25, 50 and 100, each with a either 16mm or 12mm adapter and small nipple outlet.

Areas of applications of button drippers

  1. an individual plant(passion fruits , oranges, mangoes, tomato trees, and avocados, lawn irrigation, tree nurseries’ banana trees)
  2. planter boxes,
  3. large pots
  4. ground covers

 

Advantages of button drippers

  1. Extensive land leveling is not a must since drip irrigation can be employed in all landscapes;
  2. Reduction of water loses and maximizing water use efficiency.
  3. Soil conditions can be taken into account to a maximum extent and soil erosion risk due to irrigation water impact can be reduced to a minimum;
  4. high efficiency of  fertilizer and nutrients usage since  water is application is locally(reduction  of groundwater contamination risk);
  5. Minimization of Weed growth  as water and nutrients delivery is only to the cultivated plant;
  6. Positive impact on seed germination and yield development;
  7. Low energy operational costs because majority of the work is by gravity
  8. Drip tape is a recyclable material and can be recycled into viable plastic resins for reuse in the plastics manufacturing industry.
  9. No extensive land leveling requirement and it is applicable in all landscapes.
  10. Reduction of water losses and  maximizing water application efficiency.
  11. Soil conditions can be taken into account to a maximum extent and soil erosion risk due to irrigation water impact can be reduced to a minimum;
  • Turbulent flow through the dripper reduces likelihood of clogging
  • Uniform flow rate
  • Raised barbed outlet prevents water runoff along the drip lateral
  • Resistant to chemicals and fertilizers used in landscape applications
  • Constructed of UV-resistant, durable plastic material to withstand the most adverse conditions
