The multi-tal­ent­ed irri­ga­tion system

Cen­ter­lin­er 9000

Each field does have its spe­cif­ic fea­tures. If you want to make full use of the poten­tial of your field, you need an indi­vid­u­al­ly tai­lored irri­ga­tion system. Deter­min­ing this is an art that only true irri­ga­tion spe­cial­ists can master. Just like us at BAUER. We have there­fore created a special system for large, irreg­u­lar sur­faces: the CENTERLINER 9000. It com­bines the advan­tages of a pivot and a linear system in one machine and can even better use the area, espe­cial­ly when it is a spa­cious, irreg­u­lar­ly shaped field. As with the LINESTAR, a central unit drives the CENTERLINER lin­ear­ly with the trusses over the field. The Cen­ter­lin­er, however can also switch to pivot mode. A special linear control always keeps the machine on the right track. The water is sup­plied via hydrants and feed hose or ditch feed.

Depend­ing on the field sit­u­a­tion and pre­cip­i­ta­tion rates, the CENTERLINER can irri­gate the same area as a LINESTAR, but only requires half the number of towers. Which results in lower acqui­si­tion costs. In addi­tion, the CENTERLINER can be pulled over to another field.

Why CENTERLINER?

  • Maximum uti­liza­tion of area in case of large, irreg­u­lar surfaces
  • Com­bines CENTERSTAR and LINESTAR in one (circle and linear irrigation)
  • Irri­gates the same area as a LINESTAR under certain cir­cum­stances, but with half the number of towers
  • Energy-saving low pres­sure system
  • High irri­ga­tion effi­cien­cy due to water appli­ca­tion close to the ground
  • Gentle irri­ga­tion ensur­ing maximum pro­tec­tion of crops
  • High level of flex­i­bil­i­ty thanks to rotat­ing and towing option
  • Stable yield also in dry periods
  • Long product lifespan

Span — Trussing

  • Five dif­fer­ent pipe diam­e­ters provide a wide appli­ca­tion range (50–600m³/h)
  • Optimum adjust­ment guar­an­tees lowest oper­at­ing costs
  • Only one pipe length (5.85m) for easy assem­bly and transportation
  • Truss rods, diam. 20mm, with high tensile strength and large safety reserves
  • Even arc shape of the truss­ing ensures high degree of stability
  • The 90° arrange­ment of the bracing angle ensures a uniform load dis­tri­b­u­tion in the most dif­fi­cult terrain
  • Crossed drive tower braces for high sta­bil­i­ty on uneven terrain

  • The wide wheel base of 4.3m (stan­dard) and 5.2m guar­an­tees a high level of sta­bil­i­ty, even on rough terrain and in windy areas
  • 2 con­struc­tion heights of 4.2 m (stan­dard) and 5.0m for optimal adap­ta­tion to dif­fer­ent crops
  • Towable — high level of flex­i­bil­i­ty and adap­ta­tion to crop rotation

Precise and reliable

Tower cou­pling

The sturdy drive tower cou­pling, free from play, with ball and socket per­fect­ly com­pen­sates for extreme slopes. Mounted on the outside of the pipe, it does not restrict the cross-section of the main­line pipe, thereby ensur­ing optimum water flow without pres­sure loss. The weather, UV and ozone-resis­tant hose collar facil­i­tates large angles.

Align­ment control

BAUER is the only man­u­fac­tur­er to offer a control lever that is mounted direct­ly above the swivel point of the flex­i­ble joint. Any torsion in the pipe has no influ­ence on the control; the entire system is kept stress-free. Optimum adjust­ment of switch­ing brack­ets with pre­ci­sion bear­ings of the control cams ensures precise move­ment trans­mis­sion. Precise drive tower control system leads to a long product lifespan.

Pre­ci­sion control

The pre­ci­sion control for all Lines­tar and Cen­ter­lin­er systems (regard­less of the number of spans) and for Cen­ter­star systems with more than 12 drive towers offers utmost accu­ra­cy. The angles between the drive towers are trans­mit­ted by means of control cables, counter-bal­anc­ing any torsion in the steel structure.

GPS Control

Using GPS modules and an RTK base station, the ACTUAL posi­tion is con­stant­ly com­pared with the TARGET posi­tion of the machine and cor­rect­ed imme­di­ate­ly if nec­es­sary. GPS control is avail­able as an option for Lines­tars and Cen­ter­lin­ers with a 4‑wheel central unit and Smart­Touch control box.

Advan­tages of the GPS control:

  • No obsta­cle in irri­ga­tion area
  • No digging and field main­te­nance required
  • No main­te­nance work
