The new Thinwall Dripline by Toro features a flat, molded emitter inside an extruded, thin-wall tube for use in micro-irrigation projects.
Features for the new product include emitters that are highly resistant to plugging, even in poor water quality operations; a requirement of only 120-mesh filters; and it's available in 10-, 13- and 15-mil wall thicknesses in popular 5/8" and 7/8" internal diameters.
The Thinwall Dripline comes in five flow rates including .16, .25, .30, .47 and .75 gallons per hour to accommodate a number of soil types and field conditions.
The new product is compatible with all of Toro's micro-irrigation products.
