The tra­di­tion­al method

BAUER Pipe Irrigaton

There are a number of dif­fer­ent methods for agri­cul­tur­al irri­ga­tion, pipe irri­ga­tion is one of them. It is con­sid­ered a tra­di­tion­al method with quite logic advan­tages. Pipe irri­ga­tion enables extreme­ly precise irri­ga­tion with rel­a­tive­ly even water dis­tri­b­u­tion over the entire surface. The water resources can be used opti­mal­ly, wind drift and dif­fu­sion into the atmos­phere are low. This method is perfect for veg­etable crops such as new pota­toes, carrots or onions.

At Bauer you will find all the com­po­nents you need for your indi­vid­ual field irri­ga­tion method!

The classic system

Classic irri­ga­tion system 

Classic irri­ga­tion system with sprin­kler lines to lay out is per­fect­ly suited for small areas and farms where enough work­force is avail­able to operate the system.  The piping system con­sists of the fol­low­ing main components:

  • PUMP UNIT: tractor‑, electro- or diesel pump unit
  • MAIN LINE: con­sist­ing of pipes laid in the ground or quick-cou­pling pipes, depend­ing on the indi­vid­ual situation
  • PIPELINES AND SPRINKLER: The pipeline and the sprin­klers need to be moved to the next posi­tion after the desired pre­cip­i­ta­tion rate has been reached. Small as well as wide range sprin­klers are suit­able for this system. The type of the sprin­kler depends on the size of the irri­gat­ed area.

The average expen­di­ture of work for this irri­ga­tion system is approx. 2–3 hours per hectare and irri­ga­tion amount.

The upgrade

Hose pull system

This system is already a step towards saving time during the irri­ga­tion process. The irri­ga­tion system con­sists of the fol­low­ing components.

  • PUMPING UNIT : Tractor‑, electro- or Diesel pumping unit
  • MAIN LINE:
  • SPRINKLER LINES AND SPRINKLER: With this system the sprin­klers are not direct­ly mounted on the pipe but on carts which are con­nect­ed to 40m long 3/4 inch hoses which are con­nect­ed at one end to the pipe. For moving the sprin­kler it is only nec­es­sary to adjust the sprin­kler carts and to pull the 3/4 inch hoses. This results in reduced work load and saves time.

With hose length of 40m it is pos­si­ble to irri­gate a trip width of 90 m, this means that only each 90 m the sprin­kler line con­sist­ing of HK quick cou­pling pipes need to be laid out. This results in 30% less work com­pared to con­ven­tion­al irri­ga­tion systems. Expen­di­ture of work is approx. 1,5 hours per hectar and irri­ga­tion amount.

By laying out the lat­er­als at inter­vals of max. 90m no further pipes need to be installed during the irri­ga­tion process. Only the sprin­kler carts with the hosed need to be moved.

This system is mainly used in the North African region. It is applic­a­ble for dif­fer­ent field sizes and forms. Fur­ther­more, only small sprin­klers are used in order to apply only low pre­cip­i­ta­tion rates. This is impor­tant for newly planted sen­si­tive crops.

Next Level

Pipe grid

This irri­ga­tion system rep­re­sents a further exten­sion to the con­ven­tion­al irri­ga­tion machine. The pipe grid con­sists of BAUER HK-pipes cov­er­ing the entire field, which are laid out the begin­ning of the irri­ga­tion season.

During the irri­ga­tion process the pipes remain in place and only the sprin­klers on the pipes need to be moved 18m further. This results in fewer labour require­ments. The work required is approx. 0,8–1 hour per hectar or irri­ga­tion amount.

Depend­ing on the length of the pipes one or two sprin­klers are in oper­a­tion, this system enables the use of small pipes (HK 50 pipes) making the pipe grid a very cost-saving solu­tion.  With this system also small and medium sprin­klers can be used so only low irri­ga­tion inten­si­ty is reached. Fur­ther­more, an optimal use on all field forms and sizes is guaranteed.optimaler Einsatz  The pipe grid is an inter­me­di­ate stage to the sta­tion­ary irri­ga­tion system.

Solid Set System
Top Level

Solid Set System

When irri­gat­ing with a solid set system the lat­er­als with sprin­klers are laid out to cover the entire area to be irri­gat­ed. Oper­a­tion is con­fined to opening and closing the con­nec­tion points. Time expen­di­ture is only 0,5 hours per hectar or irri­ga­tion amount.

The pipelines are laid out before the irri­ga­tion season starts and has to be removed before the harvest. This system can also be ugraded to a fully auto­mat­ic system, i.e the irri­gaiton and the sprin­kler lines can be con­trolled via auto­mat­ic control units and control valves. As a con­se­quence it is pos­si­ble that the system enables “rain at the push of a button”.

Classic System

The ben­e­fits of the classic system

  • Easy instal­la­tion of the system, this means ready for instal­la­tion in a very short time
  • High mobil­i­ty by use of quick cou­pling pipes, it is pos­si­ble to move the machine quickly to other areas
  • Eco­nom­i­cal use on every surface and area
  • The irri­ga­tion system can be extend­ed at any time
  • It is pos­si­ble to apply only low pre­cip­i­ta­tion rates. This is impor­tant for sen­si­tive, newly planted crops.
Hose pull system

The ben­e­fits of the hose pull system

  • The hose pull system needs 30% less work com­pared to the clas­si­cal system. Expen­di­ture of work is approx. 1,5 hours per hectare and pre­cip­i­ta­tion rate.
  • The system can be moved more easily to other areas: For moving the system it is only nec­es­sary to adjust the sprin­kler carts and to pull the 3/4 inch hoses.
  • Eco­nom­i­cal use on every surface and area
  • The irri­ga­tion system can be extend­ed at any time
  • As only small sprin­klers are used, it is pos­si­ble to apply low pre­cip­i­ta­tion rates result­ing in a par­tic­u­lar­ly fine rain. This is impor­tant for sen­si­tive, newly planted crops.
Pipe Grid System

The ben­e­fits of the pipe grid system

  • The hose pull system needs even less work com­pared to the hose pull system. Expen­di­ture of work is approx. 0.8 – 1.0 hours per hectare and irri­ga­tion rate.
  • The system can be moved more easily to other areas: For moving the system only the sprin­klers have to be moved.
  • Small pipe diam­e­ters (HK50) are suf­fi­cient, which reduces also the price of the whole system.
  • Eco­nom­i­cal use on every surface and area
  • The irri­ga­tion system can be extend­ed at any time
  • Small and medium sprin­klers are used, pre­cip­i­ta­tion rate is low.
Solid Set System

The ben­e­fits of the solid set system

  • Energy-saving due to low working pressures
  • Low pre­cip­i­ta­tion rate due to the use of small sprin­klers, there­fore, applic­a­ble for all soils and very sen­si­tive crops
  • Even dis­tri­b­u­tion of pre­cip­i­ta­tion and little influ­ence of wind by chosing the right sprinkler
  • Very flex­i­ble, can be used on dif­fer­ent areas
  • Pos­si­bil­i­ty to expand the system from a simple piping system to a fully auto­mat­ic sta­tion­ary system which enables “rain at the push of a button”.
  • Per­fect­ly applic­a­ble for all field forms and sizes and crops
  • High oper­at­ing safety as the systems has a simple com­po­nent struc­ture and trouble shoot­ing can even be done by untrained staff
  • Low oper­at­ing risk, as the system is divided into small sprin­klers the irri­ga­tion can even be main­tained in case of failure of parts,however, with reduced capacity.
