Evaluation of performance of irrigation equipment. II - Self-propelled system CHUVISCO



Evaluation of performance of irrigation equipment. II - Self-propelled system CHUVISCO



Revista Ceres 48(248): 358-369



In field trials on a clay soil in Espirito Santo, Brazil, the effectiveness of the self-propelled sprinkler system "Chuvisco", manufactured by ASBRASIL, was tested with working pressures of 5.5 or 6.5 kgf/cmsuperscript 2, nozzle sizes of 30 or 32 mm, 15, 17 or 19 gear teeth and distance between carriers of 48, 60, or 72 m. Wind speed and direction significantly affected distribution of water. The condition of carriers, working pressure and nozzle size affected velocity of travel.
