Impact rain gun sprinkler
Eunidrip irrigation systems stocks impact rain gun sprinkler that irrigates various diameters per farmer request or land acreage.
Impact rain gun sprinkler discharges water ranging from 10000 liters per hour to 32000 liters per hour.
The commonly used rain rain gun sprinklers have a wetting diameter or water throw ranging from 48 meters to 72 meters but the commonly used diameter is 56 meters.
These diameters are very critical in designing the amount of water required at the source and the number of impact gun sprinklers the farm requires.
Uses of impact rain gun sprinkler
Impact gun sprinklers are normally applied in irrigating pastures, tall bushes orchards and maize plantations of large acreage.
This is because of their water usage and radius of throw which covers large distances within a single rotation.

The available impact gun sprinklers in our stock are of internal diameters of one inch (1”), one and a half inches (11/2”), two inches (2”)and three inches (3”).
The working components of these impact gun sprinklers require high pressure withstanding components like couplings and water pipes. This is because the most gun sprinklers operate at pressures of 40 psi to 120 psi which are considered to be high pressures.
Rain gun sprinkler installation requires pipes of high operating nominal pressure of 8 bars and above. This is to avoid the rapture or breakages of the pipe.
Commonly pipes that are used are that with high wear and tear resistance, resistant to weather conditions, high resistance to pressure, high resistance against voltage cracking, durable, corrosion resistance, easy and reliable, reduced friction losses and lower flow noise
Normally the rain gun sprinklers have outside threaded ends thus needed the reducing couplings to make it joined to the main line.
