EL CAJON, Calif. (February 12, 2014) - Toro is pleased to announce its new pressure-compensating sprinkler, Micro Sprinkler 7 PC. Specifically designed for orchards, vineyards, and nursery applications where undulating terrain and long lateral lengths are challenging, Micro Sprinkler 7 PC's unique pressure-compensating design provides uniform flows and diameters over a wide range of operating pressures. In addition, the Micro Sprinkler 7 PC has a wider diameter of throw than previous Toro micro sprinklers. Capabilities of the new Micro Sprinkler 7 PC include:
Wide diameter of throw from 16 feet to 31 feet, depending on sprinkler model
Pressure-compensating sprinkler provides uniform flow over a wide range of operating pressures from 20 psi to 60 psi
Low angle of throw to maximize irrigation under foliage
Easy identification in eight color-coded flow rates ranging from 9 GPH - 40 GPH
Snap-fit bearing provides easy field inspection and maintenance
Improved distribution characteristics with larger droplet sizes that are less susceptible to wind
Anti-insect/dust proof spinner retracts to protect nozzle when not in operation
Optional break-off deflector tab allows the sprinkler to be placed near a newly planted tree to concentrate water where the roots are developing
Fully assembled models available with pre-installed tube and stake
“Micro Sprinkler 7 PC is our latest generation of micro sprinkler and is suitable for various applications including under-tree irrigation, overhead irrigation, and vegetable, vineyard, orchard and greenhouse applications,” says Mara McCartney, Toro product manager. “The sprinkler's spray pattern suits a wide range of crops to meet growers' needs.”
